Paintings of the Musee d'Orsay

Even if you are not into art very much, you will probably recognize many of the paintings in Musee d'Orsay. Everyone has heard of van Gogh and Monet! If you really love art, then this place will be a paradise for you. Below is a taste of what you can see in this fabulous museum of the Impressionists and their contemporaries.

Circus, Georges Seurat

Poppies, Claude Monet

The Angelus, Jean-Francois Millet

Starry Night, Vincent van Gogh
It shouldn't take more than two hours to get through this museum. It is located a short walk from the area of Paris where we plan on lodging.

  1. This looks great and only two hours. That does not seem overwhelming. It should be very interesting to see these works of art in person.
