Over-looking the ocean:
The exhibition of Impressionist Paris was downstair in the building. We were not allowed to take pictures in this particular exhibition. There were many collections on the main floor of the Fine Arts Museum. The collections consisted of some Erupean paintings includes masterworks from the 14th thought the 20th centuries. A few of my favorites from Claude Monet:
I was really happy to see this original painting from Claude Monet.
This particular painting caught my eyes. Title: The Russian Bride's Attire , 1887 by Kontansky Mokovsky.
Another type of art piece: Trompe L'Oeil Illusion
There were also some European decorative art, including furniture, sculptures, and other decorative items. Highlights included French baroque inlaid furniture, 18th-century English porcelain, and Rodin sculptures.( I didn't know until later that the famous Rodin sculpture:: The Thinker was in this museum, or else, I would have taken a picture of it).

It was a beautiful museum and there was so much to see. I wish we had more time for a scenic drive, but when we went outside the museum at 5 pm, it was foggy already and it was impossible to see where the ocean was. However, I really enjoyed the trip on that day.
