My encounters with Anne
As you see, I found Anne, more than once: the blue version is in Nantes, the white in the Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris. She is formidable, and still hard to get to know. I could not interview her, or see much of the inner woman. But by visiting her most important homes—the châteaux at Blois and Amboise—and experiencing her environment, I do have a better perspective on Anne, her life, and her times.
