A Peek Inside the Musée d’Orsay

In my last post, I wrote about my recent encounter with my favorite art museum in Paris: the Musée d’Orsay. As I wandered through the museum, I snapped some photos of the works that really caught my attention so that I could share them with you here on Global Heartbeat. Of course, taking a picture of a picture cannot capture the majesty contained within each piece of art – but perhaps it will inspire you to include this museum on your travel itinerary the next time you are in the French capital. Now, let’s begin our (mini) virtual-tour of the Musée d’Orsay!
