Schoolchildren at Le Moulin de la Gallette
I can't overemphasize how cool the Orsay is, it's like every other piece in there was in your art textbook. Stuff you thought you forgot ten years ago is suddenly right back like "hey, Delacroix, when was the last time i thought about him, but I bet he painted that... yep! I'm right! I AM AN ART HISTORY GOD! It's kind of sad, there's so much there you can't even start to absorb it, then you come around the corner and POW there's "Dancing at le Moulin de la Gallete" and you always kind of hated that painting and sorta though impressionism was for girls but FUCK if it doesn't kick ass in person.
And don't even get me started on the Louvre. that's coming up later.
