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.
Check out what we are going to do.

Under the Rhino Statue, in front of the museum
We will meet in front of the museum, under the statue of the Rhino, on the riverside
We will discover artists from the Realism and the Pre-impressionist movements (bases of the main Impressionism, with Courbet and Manet among others), at the ground-floor and then we will move to see the most important artists of the Impressionist movement (Monet, Renoir, Degas, Cézanne and many others) at the upper floor. At the end of the Impressionist gallery we will also admire great characters who moved in a transverse way, experiencing different techniques and styles in a Post-Impressionist moment (Van Gogh, Gauguin, Toulouse-Lautrec) and then we will end the tour at the second floor, talking about modern sculpture in front of Rodin's masterpieces.

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.
Thank you, John! I had a wonderful time as well! See you next time in Paris!
