Musée d'Orsay: First Floor Gallery 09 - Orientalism
Paris, France - September 2016
"Pèlerins allant a La Mecque" ("Pilgrims going to Mecca") - oil on canvas by Léon Belly (1861).
The Musée d'Orsay in Paris, a former railway station converted into an art museum houses many artwork dating from 1848 to 1914, including paintings, sculptures, furniture, and photography. It houses the largest collection of impressionist and post-Impressionist masterpieces in the world, by painters including MonetManetDegasRenoirSisley, and many other masters. It is one of the largest art museums in Europe.
Tip: When visiting the museum, go to the 5th Floor first as it houses art work by the impressionist.
These are the photos taken of the artwork at the museum, for presentation purposes and due to photography angle, many of these have been cropped, and edited to compensate for low lighting. It is better to visit the museum as nothing beats seeing the originals.

This blog comes in several pages. The first floor of the museum is very large and to manage the many number of pieces on display, I have separated the First Floor into several sections. This page nine of nine of the first floor displaying Orientalism Art; i.e. art work with relations to the Orient (in those day and art terms this was Palestine and North Africa.
