France #10- Impressionists, here we come
After seeing these, Elizabeth commented that she was impressed at Monet's skill- she had tried painting this and couldn't achieve anything like what he had. [Photos above by Elizabeth].
We found our lines- even having pre-purchased tickets, the wait to get into the Musée d'Orsay was a bit epic (maybe 30 minutes?). A bit of drizzle, but the storm mainly stayed away while we waited.
Finally in. Time for some more tussling while the adults got themselves organized, then up through the museum to the exhibits: more Monet, Van Gogh, Gaguin, Renoir, and more! We paired up to keep track of each other. Chris and Elizabeth, me and Stephen, Linda and Steve. Interesting to see different styles of painting, and even paintings in series. A few pictures below (including the picture of Van Gogh's room in Arles, the french town we'd driven through. Helped to be able to link Amsterdam & Van Gogh with France, and then his original works here in Paris).
