Toulouse capitol

This building, the current town hall and head office of the Théâtre national du Capitole, is remarkable because of its 8 pink marble columns on the facade, its Henri 4th courtyard, which saw the assassination of the Duke of Montmorency and the salle des Illustres, inspired by the Farnese gallery in Rome, where gilded mouldings fight for prime position with paintings.
We explored the Jean-Paul Laurens, Henri Martin and Paul Gervais rooms. Amazing it was 🙂

      I must say I did enjoy all those paintings 😀 Some where really interesting and I have to admit that many times we were wondering if people on them are female or maybe male…. 🙂
