One of my favorite museums is the Orsay. I especially love Impressionism and you can find just about every famous artist represented here. Part of the art is the museum itself as it is an old renovated train station full of interesting details.
At the opposite end of the entrance is this cutaway of the Garnier Opera House. It shows how small the concert hall is compared to the rest of the building. I’d love to get a behind the scenes tours there one of these days.
There are two huge clocks showing the time from outside but you can also get this incredible look at it from behind along with a view of Paris outside.
Happily, they allow photography inside once more. This is by Cezanne.
Degas. It was considered very controversial when first exhibited.
This was controversial too, I guess because it showed common workers without shirts working. I just love the light. Note the wine bottle next to the worker on the right.
A look at the restaurant in the museum.
