Marie was great. Voice a bit quiet, we had to strain with all the crowds. Gave a wonderful overview of struggles of Impressionists against establishment. The problem with the tour was the crowds. Worse than Disneyland on a bad day. Many of the paintings Marie wanted to show us were buried 10 people deep and we never did get the chance to study them. When we did get fortunate to get in front of a painting, 15 hands with cameras were stuck in front of my face. I’ve been studying the art from this museum for 6 months in preparation, and saw fewer than 10% of what I wanted to see. Biggest disappointment of entire vacation.
I appreciated Thibaud’s knowledge, perspective and humor. He gave us a good “context” in which to consider the artwork we saw and the building’s history.
We had a very small private tour - 4 people and Marie. It was quite crowded which made it difficult to hear her soft voice. She needed a microphone and we needed to have a voice box similar to the ones we used on the Viking tours.
