While in Paris, it was my intention to take my family to the Musée de l’Orangerie to see the Impressionist paintings, in particular Monet. Once we had admired Monet’s murals of the lilies, we browsed through the rest of the museum to enjoy the other art on display. Near the end of our visit, I came across a pretty lady in pink. I noted that the painter, Marie Laurencien, was a woman – not many paintings by women were on display.
There were only three of her paintings up and I found them to be refreshing after some of the dark colours that we had seen in many of the other artists’ paintings.
What do you think of Laurencien’s paintings?
