Yesterday we visited one of our favorite art collections in Paris at Musee l’Orangerie. This art amassed by artist and dealer Paul Guillaume consists of impressionist and post-impressionist paintings. There are a few new paintings each time we visit and dozens of familiar ones. Here are a few favorites (if you click on them you should see larger images):
Renoir’s Women and Girls
Cezanne’s Provencal Landscapes
A Picasso we had not seen before:
Of course l’Orangerie is famous as housing Monet’s eight huge panels of waterlilies. Here is a sample:
After the museum we explored the Tuileries. Jean did some painting:
I watched the birds diving for minnows:
Back at home we were greeted by the beautiful hibiscus in the courtyard.
JP made a tasty beet risotto for dinner. We talked until we all began to nod off and then retired for the night. Another great day.
The trip seems so wonderful. I never knew waterlilies were such huge panels.
