    Overlooking Musee d'Orsay's Interior

    by mydreamquest Written Nov 30, 2004

    I took this picture from the cross walk on the 3rd or 4th level. Bear in mind that on the 4th level, there is another Van Gogh painting there that is not indicated on the map.

    Klimt's Field of Flowers at Musée d'Orsay

    by mydreamquest Written Nov 30, 2004

    I love artist Gustav Klimt's "The Kiss" which can be seen at Vienna's Belvedere Museum as was painted in 1908, a year after this work, painted in 1907.

    They got art

    by mig7410 Written Feb 27, 2004

    Monday is free admission, and its packed. The line was a mile long, but we had Paris Museum Pass and walked to the front of the line. Word can't describe the art inside, just go.

  • The best gallery ever ...?

    by teafortwo Written Dec 1, 2003

    I think this is one of my most favourite art galleries in the world - the collection of impressionist art is fabulous and the architecture of the building itself is amazing.

    Much easier to handle than the Louvre (not nearly so large).

    A beautiful art museum filled with impressionists - Manet, Monet, Degas...

    A must see!

    Blue Lillies (Orsay)

    by Aaron7 Written Jan 9, 2003

    One of the most recognizable subjects of the artist Monet. He did many paintings of lillies, and there are many other of his paintings her in Orsay.

    Whistler's Mother (Orsay)

    by Aaron7 Written Jan 9, 2003

    It was odd. Here I am in the Musee del Orsay, and the first piece of art I recognize is from an artist from Maine!

    A train station converted into a Museum. It fills the void left by the Louvre and Center Pompidour, housing the works of the great early modern painters: Monet, Manet, Renoir, Degas, Seurat...

    MUSÉE D'ORSAY. My favorite museum in Paris was an old train station.It was open in 1986 and it contains masterpieces of the second part of the 19th Century art. Beatiful restaurant full of light.

    The building -- a converted railway station -- is nearly as noteworthy as the collection of impressionist and post-impressionist art. It picks up where the Louvre leaves off (around 1850).

    If you love Impressionist art then you must spend some time at the Musee D'Orsey. They have a wonderful collection! This is a post card of Renoir's The Boating Party.
