His name is Lucien Levy-Dhurmer, 1865-1953. Their collection held quite a few very striking, uh, portraits, if you will. All of them gave you a definite mood.

Note the absinthe candies on my lamp. We just got back from Europe and I bought them somewhere in Paris, I think - oh yeah, at the Musee d' Orsay! Of course, that's where they have a lot of Impressionist works.
Note Degas' Absinthe Drinker below; a controversial picture in its own rite. Absinthe was a green alcohol of which many artists of that day partook. It was sometimes referred to as The Green Fairy.

Most people understand you couldn't see everything they have in less than a month. I do know that I walked my little legs off on the only day I could go, and barely scratched the surface. As this was our second time there, I knew what I was up against and simply enjoyed the day, picking out a few particular must-sees, and enjoying surprises as they came along.

We just got back from England, Germany and France and I'm excited to do some posting on the art and museums, among other things, that we experienced. We have some out-of-country company coming tomorrow; I'll start adding things next week when things calm down.
