Above: "Hommage to Delacroix" by Henri Fantin-Latour, 1864. He felt that Eugène Delacroix did not receive sufficient recognition for his greatness,
so Fantin-Latour showed people who did such as himself, Charles Baudelaire, James Whistler and Édouard Manet.

1 is "Luncheon on the Grass" by Édouard Manet, 1863. Manet was an influence and supported the impressionists. This canvas caused a scandal because nudity
was perfectly acceptable in mythological, historical or religious paintings, but not in a painting of a picnic with two clothed gentlemen.

2 and 3 show the view of the museum from the 5th floor, and the original clock in the train station by Victor Laloux.

4 is "Entering the Rochelle Port" by Paul Signac, 1921.

5 is "The Popes Chateau" (in Avignon) by Paul Signac, 1900.

6 and 7 is "Starry Night Over the Rhône" by Vincent van Gogh, 1888.

8 is a portion of "Romans During the Decadence" by Thomas Couture, 1847.

9 is "The Hunters of Vincennes" by Alfred Stevens, 1854.

10 is "The Family Bellelli" by James Tissot, 1858. Note how Tissot shows the personality of each family member - the stern mother, the obedient good girl
standing upright, the more free-spirited daughter gazing away and not sitting like a lady, and the more forgiving father looking at her.

11 is "Olympia" by Édouard Manet, 1863. It also caused a scandal because the nude was a known courtesan Victorine Meurent (with her servant art model
Laurein Paris), nude without shame, and couldn't care less what the viewer thinks.
