we must carry it with us or we find it not

Musee D'Orsay.......

~Musee D'Orsay~
What a fabulous art gallery! and to think they have created this from a train station
I would have to say it's my favourite gallery to visit
and holds the best of the French impressionist paintings

~Rue de L'Abbe de L'Epee~
by Johan Jongkind

I'd never heard of this artist before, but loved his work
especially the little group chatting on the right
Do you think he's asking for directions or just saying
Bonjour mesdames ??

and of course visiting art galleries is strenuous work
and one needs a little sustinance!!
The food was fantastique and the waiters very charming!
Vous-avez un bonsoir Madame!!
oh la la ! must go back

Hi Dianne,

I loved the Museums and Art galleries in France, could have spent hours looking around them.
I have not heard of that artist, but his work is lovely.

I have always wanted to eat at the cafe of the d'Orsay. Must put that on my list for next trip!

Simply beautiful.
Like that work by Johan Jongkind.
Must visit this place when I am there.
Here there is a school which is held in old train coaches (I have a post by the name of Gurukul)

Wonderful, Dianne! I have a beautiful photo of the d'Orsay hanging right here in our office that my husband took on his last trip to Paris (yes, e went without me – that won't happen again). Your wonderful photos have reminded me that I must get going on trip planning! – g
