Orsay Museum

Orsay Museum

The Orsay museum, located in the old Orsay railway train station is dedicated to all forms of artistic expression: painting, sculpture and photography of the end of the XIXth - beginning of the XXyh centuries period. The era of the impressionist painters is particularly well represented with the masterpieces of Manet, Monet, Renoir, Degas...
In the 1870's, "Impressionism" was a "Avant-garde" painters group rejected by the official academy. The impressionists (among them Auguste Renoir, Claude Monet, Edgar Manet, Théo Van Gogh and Paul Cézanne) painted ordinary life and people on the spot and in the open air. They rejected historical and mythological subjects. They used light colors. Above all, they are famous for having departed from the tradition of painting "reality". Instead, they used color spots and strokes to suggest their "impression" of the reality that only reveals itself from the distance
