We got up early for our vacation-standards, so we were a quarter before openingtime at Musée d’Orsay. And that was really necessary because there was already a line that almost reached the Seine 😉 (The museum is situated next to the river Seine). The museum has a large collection of Impressionists and other artists that influenced them. Below you s ee a few paintings of places we are going to visit the next days, that are in this museum.

Voor onze vakantienormen vroeg op, dus we waren een kwartier voor openingstijd bij Musée d’Orsay. En dat was echt nodig, want de rij bereikte al bijna de Seine 😉 Het museum heeft een grote collectie Impressionisten en andere kunstenaars die hen hebben geïnspireerd. Hieronder zie je enkele schilderijen van plaatsen waar we deze vakantie nog heen gaan, die in dit museum hangen.
I thought this painting of Rosa Bonheur was the most beautiful realistic painting in the museum. First of all, it was very special a woman became this famous. How she painted the earth and the cows, even the drooling of the cows. it is very special.
I would like to practice my painting and learn how Monet uses shadow and light in this beautiful piece of art. How the light shines through the trees and gives light and shades on the dresses and the picnickblanket.
