Musee d’Orsay

Yesterday we revisited Musee d’Orsay. This time we visited Van Gogh, Gauguin, Impressionists, and Post-impressionists. Jean was in seventh heaven with two rooms dedicated to pastels. They included about 40 pastels out of the museum’s 531 total pastels. However, many were paintings we had not seen before.

I downloaded some images from the museum’s website. They aren’t of great quality, but since Musee d’Orsay no longer allows photographs it is the best I can do. These include oils as well as some of the pastels.

We will return another day!

About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.
