As one who loves sculpture, I find the Musée D’Orsay the perfect place to satisfy that passion. Privileged visitors enter a virtual garden of sculptures that flow through the historic museum.
Once the Orsay railway station, the building itself is a work of art dating to 1900. Beneath soaring ceilings and the lovely gold station clock, quiet visitors wander from a graceful, reclining nymph to Benjamin Spence’s “The Angel’s Whisper” to Rodin’s “Winter” and “The Bronze Age” – the collection is seemingly endless.
So many moments to be still, to absorb the history and culture, to appreciate one of so many treasures of Paris.
We finish our visit with a rooftop view across the Seine to the Tuilleries Gardens. Paris – there is no city like her!
