It's so nice that I was able to take photos (minus flash of course)
in this wonderful museum. Although mine are far from quality photos
I feel a certain attachment to them because I have actually stood in front
of some of these amazing art-works - they are not reproductions they are the original works
At times I had to pinch myself !!
I understand that the museum now has a "No Camera" policy
but have been unable to verify this - Does anyone know the current policy!!
This oil on canvas "Homage to Delacroix" was painted by Henri Fantin-Latour in 1864
that's Henri in the white shirt and Eduard Manet with his hand in his pocket.
I love the little spray of field flowers - it adds a touch of pretty
to an otherwise quite sombre painting.
