Deyrolle 46 rue de Bac Paris 7th arrondisment
Many people are opposed to taxidermy. I feel kind of ambivalent about it. All I know is that as an artist, I find it incredibly inspiring. All the colors and expressions. The animals stand still as if to pose for my painting.
Paleontology and it’s grand era are a great source of fascination and ideas.
Deyrolle is a beautiful shop and you just want to stay a while, maybe have a cup of tea and fill a sketchbook. If you’re ever in Paris, you should go check it out.
I have always liked to look at taxedermy. If well done it is like a frozen moment in time. Thanks for the beautiful pictures. I will be sure to check that out if I’m ever there.
