Musée d’Orsay goes modern!

Jens Ferdinand Willumsen - A Mountaineer (1904)
I can't help feeling that the Musée d’Orsay, which houses the world's finest collection of beautiful statues, is letting the side down by putting on its exhibition From Symbolism to Expressionism, Willumsen (1863-1958), a Danish artist. The example shown isn't too bad, although the title is a joke, but how can it compete with... er... everything else in the building! If you're in Paris between now and 17 September, you might try it.
