Much easier to handle than the Louvre (not nearly so large).
A beautiful art museum filled with impressionists - Manet, Monet, Degas...
A must see!
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.
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!
Visit Musee d’Orsay/ Orsay Museum
This museum has many paintings by famous artists. Paintings by Monet, Manet, Degas, Van Gogh, Cezanne, Pissaro, Renoir and even Whistler are all featured, not mention the plethora of sculpture.
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.
MUSEE D'ORSAY Once a railroad station, this museum has art from the mid 19th to early 20th century. Fabulous collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionst art.
Valuable master pieces of: Degas, Manet, Monet, Renoir, Sisley, Seurat,Van Gogh, Toulouse Lautrec and even Mondrian
A former railroad station on the banks of the Seine that now houses the most important collection of impressionist art in the world.
If you like museums, and painters like Renoir, Rembrandt, etc... don't miss the Orsay Museum. It's not as big as the Louvre, but the collections are wonderful.
