Memory of Fontainebleau

On the first day of school, Fine Arts students received an invitation for cocktails from Pierre Devinoy, Director Fine Arts School, where he welcoming us to the 1959 session. There, he recommended that we use our free time on weekends to visit Paris visiting notable and historic architecture. I used my camera to record the city sites while others brought sketch pads. Classmates, Frederick Moyer and Stuart Pertz sent me copies of their work. I have shared my photos with school publications.
