Nigel in Paris: post-impressionable pig
So much walking in Paris! Sometimes you just have to sit down…
…as we did on our way to the Musee d’Orsay.
Where we found that — for the second day in a row! — museum workers were on strike. (More on the strike at The New York Times.)
So instead we went — more walking! — to the nearby Musée de l’Orangerie, which features impressionist and postimpressionist works, such as by Cezanne…
“That’s not a Picasso!” (That is indeed a Picasso, Nigel.)
“Now that’s a Picasso!” (Yes, also a Picasso.)
We got a souvenir cup in the cafe!
The highlight of the Orangerie, and the reason most people visit, is for the huge waterlilies paintings by Monet:
“Let’s go for a swim!”
