art.

as you’re not allowed to take photos in the museé d’orsay anymore, i decided to write down every painting i liked. notice some of the silly lists i scribbled… (far more difficult to do when you’re copying the titles from french, i felt like a kid learning the alphabet for the first time)

these are just a few that made me stop in my tracks….

cuno amiet – snowy landscape (1904)this is AWESOME to see in person.  i wrote in brackets “HUGE!”

winslow homer – summer night (1890) – one of my favourite paintings of all time.

auguste renoir – fernand halphen as a boy (1880) - the red practically shines from across the room.

odilon redon – eve (1904)sheesh, his paintings are beautiful. difficult to pick a favourite.

louis anquetin – henri samary (1880) – wicked. possibly a new addition as i don’t recall seeing it before.

joseph granié – marguerite moreno (1899) – luminous would be the right word here.
