It makes for a dramatic display space.
But we aren’t interested in the sculpture collection in main gallery. Instead we head up the stairs to the upper level Impressionist and Post-Impressionist galleries.
There are works (some quite unfamiliar and even surprising) by many favorite artists, including Monet,
and many others.
There are also pieces by artists with whom I am completely unfamiliar, including Georges Lemmen
and Henri Edmund Cross.
Along with those of us simply admiring the paintings, some are working to perfect their own artistic skills.
Looking at all this art is a little exhausting, so it is time for a break in the cafeteria behind the old clock face.
The views from the terrace make up for the bad food!
Time for a little more art, including some wonderful little works by Toulouse-Lautrec (too dimly lit to photograph), wood carvings by Gauguin (who knew?), and a variety of other unexpected (and sometimes inexplicable) discoveries.
