October 11, 2015, Paris, France, Musée d'Orsay
In 1898, Musee d'Orsay was located at railway station connecting Paris with suburbs of southwestern France, but in 1940 it fell into disrepair. After 47 years of inactivity, station was rebuilt as Musée d'Orsay in 1986. It is made of iron and glass, and its structure is quite original. It combines Renaissance and classical styles of academic stone arches and is a symbol of nineteenth century French art.
In order to create a comprehensive exhibition, museum has collected many works of art from different countries. Other works came from Louvre, including architecture, sculpture, painting, graphics, photography, cinema, arts and crafts, and more. Fully available here.
The Musée d'Orsay presents rich works of art on three floors in chronological order: ground floor mainly displays paintings up to 1870s, second floor mainly exhibits naturalistic and symbolist paintings, third floor Impressionists and post-exhibited masterpieces of Impressionists. The hall and middle floor are used to display sculptures, including works by Rodin, Daumier, Capo and other artists.
When I visited Musee d'Orsay in Paris during National Day in 2015, I shared a Wi-Fi box with two satellites. I was so focused and obsessed with grading pictures that I accidentally fell behind main force. time and place for meetings after exhibition, so I calmly continued to watch exhibition.
When it came to prearranged meeting time, I left museum on time and stood at exit of art museum, intending to wait and see. After a long wait, familiar figure did not appear, so I ran to entrance to look and ask questions. The French woman who sells baguette burgers at entrance must remember that we bought 8 burgers, but unfortunately she speaks French, which I don't understand. I had no choice but to show my ticket, and I asked for help from staff maintaining order near museum; a man in uniform told me that I should buy a new ticket to enter museum again to find people; looking at queue waiting to enter museum like a long snake, I had no choice but to give up and go back to exit again.
Suddenly an idea came up, called abroad, temporarily opened Wi-Fi in Europe, and finally contacted main forces. It turned out that they couldn't help but linger after seeing work of many Impressionist masters on third floor of museum, so they extended viewing time but couldn't warn me at that time. It's funny that they were worried like ants on a hot pot at that time... Another trip almost missed.
