Orsay Museum

in detail

Occupying the former train station built by Victor Laloux for the 1900 World Fair, the Musée d'Orsay is a national museum devoted to all the arts of the period 1848-1914.

Different artistic trends are represented in its collections: academicism, realism, impressionism, symbolism, Art Nouveau, etc.

The list of artists includes Bonnard, Carpeaux, Cézanne, Courbet, Daumier, Degas, Gallé, Gauguin, Guimard, Lalique, Maillol, Manet, Millet, Monet, Pissarro, Redon, Renoir, Rodin, Seurat, Sisley, van Gogh, Vuillard...

Multidisciplinary, the museum organises seasons combining exhibitions, concerts, film festivals and conferences around a common theme. The wealth of French arts of this period does not prevent the museum from turning to other countries, with an acquisition and exhibition policy of artworks by foreign artists.

The organisation of temporary exhibitions aims at promoting the museum in the world and international exchanges.
