Art at the Musee d'Orsay

To delve a little deeper into my Paris trip, The Musee d'Orsay is a wonderful place to lose yourself for the day.
Just around the corner from the museum is the restaurant, Le Telegraph, which boasts 'art nouveau' stained glass.
We had a lovely meal which started with smoked salmon
 Off to the museum to see the wonderful works of art!
Manet's 'dejeunier sur l'herbe'

Monet's 'The magpie'

double panel Monet 'luncheon on the grass
One of my favourite artists: Alfred Sisley

Even Whistler's Mother was there!
More masters....
Manet's 'Berthe Morisot'

Manet's 'Women with fans'

Degas' 'Dancers in Blue'

Berthe Morisot's 'Le Berceau'
Finally, an ode to 'food'
Monet's 'The lunch'
A Renoir classic
Dance at le Moulin de la Galette
Van Gogh's 'self portrait'
Given that the museum was originally a train station, it has a fabulous huge clock that is open to visitation
Ironically, you can see the Louvre from d'Orsay's balcony!
 If ever you are in Paris, the Musee D'Orsay is a perfect day's outing!
