Afternoon at the Musée D'Orsay

We weren't able to take photographs of the art work so I have none to show you. It was astonishing to see the amount of visitors who did not respect the museum's request!

The museum building was originally used as a railway station in 1900. It opened as an art gallery in 1986 and houses works mainly from 1848 to 1914. We spent most of our time in the Impressionist and Post-impressionist galleries. The center hall on the main floor has been dedicated to sculpture. It is lovely walking through there with the natural light that enters through the arched glass roof.

Stopping for tea on the 2nd floor in the most beautiful room made you feel like royalty! (pictures allowed there)

These curves could be adapted to a quilt design!
