artist of musee d'orsay painting

I am looking for the artist that painted a blue and white vase filled with white and orangy flowers that hangs in the Musye d'Orsay in Paris. My cousin had this print hanging in her living room for years - I never knew it was "real" art. Can anyone tell me the name of the painter?

If this works, could this be the painting, by Claude Monet.Sunflowers?

If it's not that painting that Scarlett thinks it is, another possibility is one of the dÓrsay's Fantin-Latour who was famous for his flower paintings.

It is very close to Fantin-Latour's Dahlia Dans Un Vase De Chine but there is more foliage behind the flowers and the vase is fatter - also the flowers are white rather than red and pink

Well. He had many paintings, one year shortly after the opening, they had a special exhibit of his work. Go to an art book store and thumb through one of the books picturing his work, it may be there. Good luck.

How about "Narcissus and Tulips"?

So far no luck - although I've been looking at many websites on Fantin-Latour because his style seems to be the same as the painting I am looking for.

Could it have been Cezanne's "The Blue Vase"? See below.

Monet's Sunflowers are not at the Orsay!

I found this one that I thought was perfect until I saw it was at Harvard University:

Sounds like Cezanne's "Blue Vase" to me. I work in the world of art and antiques.

But Cezanne's vase is neither blue and white nor fat!

Now that I think of it, there is a Cezanne painting of Dahlias in a blue and white Ming-style vase at the Musee d'Orsay. Mimi gave me the clue with the Dahlias.

Wow, what a neat group detective work this has been. I can hardly take credit for this - - I just found a URL of this work:

http://www.abcgallery.com/C/cezanne/cezanne58.html

Sounds like this is it.

Best wishes,

Rex

Wow! I really have to hand it to you allythis must be it. I swear I looked at every Cezanne print available. (Nothing like puttering around on the computer when you should be packing!) I will look for it when I'm there!

WE FOUND IT!! The painting is question is Paul Cézanne's - Dahlias.
Thanks to all who answered this thread - I should have posted my question a long time ago instead of spending those countless hours surfing art sites. Oh well, a little culture never hurts.
Enjoy the Orsay, LVSue - I wish I could visit it again.
