Flat Stanley Montréal visits the Musée d'Orsay with Paul's class

Friday, January 28th, 2011, our Flat Stanley guest from just outside Montréal went with my son Paul's 3rd grade class to visit the Musée d'Orsay.

Here's Flat Stanley with Inès' mom ...

It's forbidden to take photos inside the museum, so here are some images of a few of the works of art that we learned about thanks to our wonderful "conférencière" named Isabelle ...

Millet's "Les Glaneuses"



Thomas Couture's "Les Romains de la décadence"

Degas' "La Classe de danse"



Renoir's "Danse à la ville"

A typical, Parisian "kiosque à journaux"...

Going down the escalator... The RER is further underground than the métro
