October 11, 2012 - Paris - Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird visits the exhibit Impressionism and Fashion, currently on display at the Musée d’Orsay. The exhibit is designed by Canadian stage designer and artistic director Robert Carsen.

Baird, an art lover, met with Musée d’Orsay President Guy Cogeval, who was director of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts from 2003 to 2007.

This exhibit is the latest example of the strong and long-standing cultural ties enjoyed by Canada and France. Baird’s visit to Paris aims to further strengthen already strong bilateral relations with France and advance Canada’s foreign policy and economic agenda generally.
