Virtual Art Museum

from the digital archives


In one of my previous careers I was a frequent traveler.

Beginning in the early 1980s, business has taken me to France dozens of time. During my free time I’d often visit the city’s extraordinary art museums.

Musee d’Orsay in Paris

Early on I was able to photograph most of the artwork. However, some years later many of the museums began to put a moratorium on photographs. Now that most of us are unable to visit museums these days, I’ve come up with an alternative.

Below you’ll find a small set of photographed artwork that I have collected over the years. Most of these photos were taken at the famous Musee d’Orsay.

Please feel free to enjoy this artwork as you take a walk through my virtual art museum

Also available is my Virtual Art Museum video for those of you who prefer to just sit back and watch the masterpieces scroll by.
