Musee d'Orsay  NOV 08 2002

Pointillist Charles Angrand's couple dans la rue stood out for me during our trip to the Museé d'Orsay. From about 8 feet away, it looks amazingly like a B&W photograph taken with a shallow depth of field and something over the lens to soften the image.

Turns out I'm not much of a Monet fan (beyond his Waterlilies at the MoMA in NYC), but I do like some of the other Impressionist stuff, especially the neo-Impressionists like Angrand. I've always liked Van Gogh (Starry Skies is one of my favorite pieces of art) and the small collection of his at the d'Orsay was very nice (esp. his self-portrait).
