Musée d'Orsay: Gérôme exhibition and some of my fav paintings ( Paris)
You still have until the 23th of January to see the exhibition of the French painter Gérôme .. in this link you can get an idea of what,if you happen to be in Paris, you can see: Musée d'Orsay: Video trailer of the Gérôme exhibition , we liked it a lot.. (Andresillo tried to take pics and we were about to get in trouble lol so we had to stop..)
Appart from recommending this temporary exhibition , I wanted to share with you some paintings i, personally, liked even though I'm not a big fan of impressionism art and I'm not an art expert either!:
1..Bonard " Mujer con vestido de cuadros" (there are a couple more paintings of diff women..all beautiful..)2. Painting by George Seurat "El circo"(Scientific impressionism)
3.A piece of art by Matisse " Lujo,Calma y voluptuosidad" - (Scientific impressionism)
4.Being Spanish, I had to like this Van Gogh's painting called "siesta"!
I could go on..and on.. but I leave you some for your visit to the museum d'Orsay! Remember that the first Sunday of each month,the main museums in Paris are free (expect long queues ,too..)! The entrance at the moment for the Orsay costs 8 euros, you can get there either by train - RER (the stop is just under the museum or by underground (Solferino -line 12 - only 5 mins away from the museum). Just to see the layout of the building inside ,which used to be a station, is beautiful!! BUT!! BUT!!! leave the camera at home.. photographs are forbidden..
One thing is clear after going to the Louvre (Louvre is the best museum in Paris,in my opinion..) and to the Rodin museum (I have to write about this one one day..is beautiful!)..Orsay should be on your list (if you are a big impressionist fan ,then it should be your number one)! Just take into consideration that in Paris, main museums are massive..only in the Louvre you can spend a couple of days.., Orsay is smaller but still big!
