Susie and I went to the Musée d’Orsay this morning, the grand museum fashioned out of what was once a train station. I am not much for museums, I confess, but this one has a special place in my heart, in part because it was there, several years ago, that we heard an exquisite performance of Allegrhi’s Miserere by the Tallis Singers, one of the truly great experiences of my life. The d’Orsay’s collection of Impressionist paintings is of course world famous. Surrounded by masses of tourists [Paris has overcome its terrorist attacks and is again the premier destination in the world for tourists], I took these IPhone shots of a pair of famous paintings by Renoir. I am not sure you can see it in my amateurish pictures, but the treatment of the dresses by Renoir is breathtaking.
