Musee D’Orsay

When Liz and I get together there’s always at least one visit to an art museum.What do you expect from a design major and a conservation major? It goes unsaid that we love to visit them whenever and wherever we can. Since last September, we’ve seen major and minor works of art in Florence, Venice, Milwaukee, Indianapolis, and now Paris. Not a bad track record!

The museum used to be an old train station so the architecture is insanely cool.

I loved that you could see the shadows of thinking of the artist in this one. It seems as if he thought about moving the original hand but then decided to keep it after all.

Finally got to see van Gogh’s room in person.

This Degas is absolutely mesmerizing, the beautifully attached fabric is so wonderfully aged.
