Explore with me the Orsay museum to admire one of the most important Impressionist collections in the world. Paris is famous as the place where the Impressionism was born, an artistic movement that signed the beginning of a new Era, when the science and the progress made painting the best way to analyse the reality and the light, giving to us unforgettable artworks. A tour about Modernity, in a museum that is also the architectonic symbol of a new lifestyle and a new way of thinking and work.

Another Excellent tour by Martina

The tour of the Musee d'Orsay, followed the tour of the Pompidou the day before. Martina is very knowledgeable, an excellent communicator and enthusiastic, so much so that she extended the allotted time. I would recommend Martina as your guide.

Is contemporary art really difficult to understand? Is the Pompidou Centre a closed and elitist place? Of course not. The square in front of the museum will welcome us and, once inside, we will explore the permanent collections. We will see masterpieces of Avant-gardes and contemporary art. A time when art met the daily life, the common object, the reality and it revolutionized techniques and perception. You will do, in short, a fascinating journey into the history of the artistic object.
