Musee D’Orsay

Today I went to the Musee D’Orsay. This is a big art gallery in Paris – but not as big as the Louvre. I liked the statues outside with ladies from different continents: Europe, Africa, Asia, North America, South America and Oceania. There was also an elephant, a rhino and a horse – but they were all in traps.

First we went to the cafe and I had a pineapple juice.  We sat behind a big clock and watched as the hands moved.


Then we went around the galleries.  There were so many paintings. I had two favoutires. One was a lady pouring water from a jug, with a black background. My other was a picture of some ballerinas wearing blue tutus.  Daddy liked the polar bear statue. Genevieve liked the circus painting made of lots of dots.  Mummy liked the Van Gogh paintings.  There were also some water lily paintings by Monet, similar to what my class made in year 1.  There was even a water lily painting where the painting was on broken plates. There was also a big room with lights that looked like flowers, and big chandeliers, the walls had gold and mirrors.  What are your favourites??

Tomorrow we are going to Luxembourg!
