In my new short story, "French Masquerade," a scene takes place in Musée d'Orsay. I have never met anyone who doesn't love Musée d'Orsay. When I picture walking through it, I imagine a stillness that belies the crowd, brought on by the impressiveness of the artwork.
Here are a couple of pictures from Musée d'Orsay.
Here's a view from inside the museum taking a shot out the clock window at the Seine.
Then here's an overview of the museum from the top floor.
The architecture of the building is worth seeing, never mind the brilliant artwork inside.
Last time we visited, we sat on the steps outside enjoying a snack before soldiering on with our sightseeing. Here's a picture of my husband resting outside Musée d'Orsay.
Do you have a lovely memory of visiting Musée d'Orsay? Share it.
And I'd love it if you'd consider buying my short story, "French Masquerade" on Amazon for 99 cents. Also available in Amazon UK for 77 pence.
