A train decorated with paintings from the Musée d’Orsay

Our favourite things

To celebrate its voyage through the landscapes that inspired many an Impressionist, a train running between Saint-Lazare station in Paris and Vernon-Gisors (where you get off if you want to visit Monet’s gardens in Giverny) has just been decorated with details from paintings by Monet, Pissarro and others.

And as all the paintings in question belong to the Musée d’Orsay, there are few images in the museum too! Here are a few photos and a film of how the giant stickers were applied…Un train décoré avec des toiles du Musée d'Orsayline J just got a little less dreary – six cars of a train have just been decorated with Impressionist art, with three themes: Paris and industrialisation, water and gardens, and landscapes of line J.

Lovely-looking? Or a Gd-awful hot mess? You decide. The photos are © Christophe Recoura.
