Lovely photos of a great place.
Loved the Monet, Millet and Manet shots the best.

Cheers!

On a cold snowy morning in the NC mountains, this really brightened my day. Thanks. Really enjoyed the photos of the paintings.

Those are really amazing images. Just moved back to L.A. after 6 years in Argentina and must put a visit there at the top of my to do list!
