Paris at the time of the Impressionists

It is very difficult to paint in a city with so much to see. Paris breathes art around every corner this spring.
The exhibition at Hotel de Ville takes us on a trip to the turn of the nineteenth century's brushes by bringing together some work from the Museum D'Orsay.

It's easy to forget that the sun shines outside, contemplating the icy atmosphere of this masterpiece depicted
by Caillebotte:

Vue de toits (effets de neige) - Gustave Caillebotte
almost hear the noise of the train ...
Gare
Saint Lazare - Claude Monet

or witness the fatigue and loneliness through Lautrec's masterful lines
Seule - Toulouse Lautrec
As we are not allowed to take pictures, I've picked these ones from the web.
Paris au temps des Impressionistes ends July 30th.

Oh I'm so green right now Sandra!! But, I still wish you a wonderful trip. If i'm not mistaken, isn't this around the time for your Anniversary? If i'm wrong I still hope you have a great time with all that art surrounding you, and come back even more inspired.
