Prononciation de la version française laisse à désirer
Il s’agit d’une narratrice anglophone. Elle prononce crucifix « crucifixe », par exemple. Moins agréable à suivre à cause de ça.
Fun and informative
I used this while at the Gauguin Portraits show in Ottawa. Really easy to use and I loved discovering the stories behind the art.
