One of my very favorite artists has always been Monet. His "Waterlilies" was on display at the Musee de l'Orangerie. The museum was closed the last time we were in Paris, so we were anxious to see it this time.
I think the reason I like Monet so well, is that he was an impressionist artist. Simple, wonderful colors and beautiful. I guess I would call his paintings very feminine and soft.
The crowd was small when we arrived and we were quite surprised that people were photographing, without flash, in front of the "guards." Usually photography of any kind is not permitted. So, sheepishly, we did take a couple of photos without getting into trouble.
Monet, "Waterlilies." Enjoy this short peak.
