And then there’s this, an actual watercolor hung on a lamppost on a major thoroughfare in central Paris. Does it mean the French promise of Liberty etc is a lie? I’m guessing?

I have to admit that for a split second I considered taking the watercolor as a souvenir. That’s because I’m an art historian who loves original works of art. But, I didn’t do it, because I’m also a respectful citizen of the world. :-))
