Amusée d’Orsay

  

VINCENT VAN GOGH
PIERRE BONNARD

 

 

  

I am not really into big museums, I find it overwhelming. I have been to Paris and back but I have never visited the Musée d’Orsay, well not up until I talked to a painter friend who also dreams of coming to Paris and spending the day inside this musée to just stare at the works of his masters.

AUGUSTE RENOIR
CLAUDE MONET

Musée d’orsay used to be a railway station. 

It has the largest collection (in the world) of Impressionist and Post Impressionist masterpieces 

by painters like Monet, Degas, Gaugin, Van Gogh, Renoir etc. 

  

 

 

  

  

Several sections of the Museum were closed and under renovation at that time but what I saw was more than enough. At first I was looking at each painting closely, studying the brushstrokes and everything, but later on I focused more on the masterpieces that I was really interested in.

My friend was right, one could just stay here all day and just stare in awe

This next painting is called L’Origine du Monde or the Origin of the World (1866) 

by French Painter Gustave Courbet.

but this painting was only publicly exhibited in 1988, 

that’s more than a century after! 

  

 

ALEXANDRE CABANEL

 

EDOUARD MANET

The Louvre may be more famous but I appreciate the paintings at Musée d’Orsay more 🙂   

 

Good thing photography was allowed inside the museum! 

I dedicate this blog entry to Ivan Roxas & the others who couldn’t be here. 

If you can’t come to Musée d’Orsay, the museum will come to you 😀 

ENJOY!!!

  1. …My favorite museum in Paris (so far…I’m sure madami pa dyan).

    Sigh. How wonderful that you are there to enjoy and live and take pictures. So I can look at the pictures! Hahaha.

    Permission to link your blog to mine?

    – Camille Javier (and that’s the [ex-]GamePlan!)

  2. A visual treat. But I wish you labeled all of the art work, for my education hehe. I recognized Gauguin, Van Gogh, Renoir and others but some I wish I knew.

    Have you been to Rizal’s favorite in Paris, Orfila museum? That’s where he studied anatomy, because of its huge collection of preserved human body parts. In one letter home, he wrote about a “table made of human livers, intestines, bones, flesh, lungs and ears.” An Italian found a way to make them as “hard as marble.” Cool, di ba?

    1. ey thanks hao-wei!

      Wish granted, (some) artworks labeled 😀 It was a nice assignment actually, the others i would have to go back to. This also gives me a good reason to come back and stare at the masterpieces. Good thing I get to go inside for free 🙂

      A table full of bodyparts!!!! Interesting 😀 Sige, will check that out.
