Georges Lacombe: Isis. Whoa! What an incredibly powerful image.
Vincent Van Gogh: La méridienne. Rich textures of paint that can really only be fully appreciated when seen in person.
Camille Pissarro: Entrée du village de Voisins. I was charmed by the stunning photo realism. It made me want to walk down this road.
Pierre Auguste Renoir: La balançoire
Pierre Auguste Renoir: Bal du moulin de la Galette. The dappled light in these two paintings were astonishing in person. It was something I had never noticed before in the photos I've seen of these paintings in books.
Georges Rochegrosse: Le Chevalier aux Fleurs. 1894. This gigantic painting made me laugh. It made me think of Jung and how much we project our own reflection onto our symbolic ideal mates.
Winslow Homer: Nuit d'été. The use of light and dark in this painting evoked in me a great sense of tension, drama and foreboding.
François-Rupert Carabin, Albert Gabriel Servat: Bibliothèque. This is my favorite piece of furniture on display. Wow. Can't go wrong with a surreal totem of carved faces as an ornate cabinet facade.
All these photos were taken by me while wandering around Musée d'Orsay.
