Van Gogh created many self-portraits during his lifetime. He painted himself more than 43 times between 1886 and 1889. In all these portraits, Van Gogh's gaze is directed away from the viewer...

The magnificent clock in the main hall of the museum...




The building has quite a lavish feel to it...


Indeed we should be grateful that this pretty building was saved from demolition in the 1970s...





Tired after the round of Musee d'Orsay, I headed out on Rue de la Légion to have something to eat...


My lunch - ham and egg crepe...
That gives me the energy to head to the Musée Rodin...
