The Harp Lesson (Mademoiselle d'Orleans Taking a Harp Lesson) by Jean Antoine Theodore Giroust

I recently visited the Dallas Museum of Art for the first time, and fell head over heels. It was kind of a maze until we (Kieryn and I, the usual) started finding rooms upon rooms of amazing pieces. We ended up staying until just before closing time, though we were only there for a couple hours. I'm personally incredibly inspired by classic oil paintings, and I'm a huge Monet fan girl, and there were a few Monet's I obsessed over. Everything we saw was free, and I'm sure we only scratched the surface. If you're in the area, definitely go. I've actually got a reason to want to go to Dallas now! I'll be going back.

This will definitely have three more parts, because I went a little photo happy. I still struggle putting everything to words, but I'm really lucky to have been around such exquisite art. It's cheesy, but I live for it you guys.


  1. I would love to attend the Dallas Museum of Art one day. Can't wait to see the rest of the photos you took.

    Dearest Lou

  2. It's amazing how they preserve the quality of these paintings! I've always wanted to go to Dallas, I'll definitely have to check out this museum if I ever go!

    1. I highly recommend it! I've been in the area for roughly ten years, and I've only just gone. It makes no sense! Thanks for the comment Jessica!

  3. I adore Monet as well! I recently saw some of his paintings in the Tel Aviv Museum of Art and I couldn't stop staring at them.
    Can't wait for the next parts!
