Musée d’Orsay


Musée d’Orsay is housed in a former train station and was inaugurated in 1986.

Outside of the Museum, from Pont Royal

Not everyone likes it. The heavy stone structures made by Gae Aulenti seem to many out of place under the glass and steel dome. I have personally found the Museum aesthetically very beautiful and represents, in its own way, a work of art that contains other works of art.

The Museum collection has few equals in the world and provides a complete overview of Impressionism, pointillism and Fauvism, with paintings of great value and emotional impact. There are many famous works that we have always been used to seeing on school books, on guides, on websites. Finding them in front of you is certainly an unforgettable experience.

Below are some of the most important works.
