Paris, Musee D’Orsay

Musee D'Orsay The Bellelli Family
It’s always on my list of places to visit when I go to Paris. It’s situated in the centre of Paris on the banks of the Seine, opposite the Tuileries Gardens, the museum was installed in the former Orsay railway station, built for the Universal Exhibition of 1900. It houses the most amazing collection of French paintings from 1848 to 1914. Here I am standing next to a painting by Degas of The Bellelli Family. It is worth spending sometime contemplating the composition of this family in their home interior.
