To mark the centenary of the First World War the Musée d'Orsay presents a special exhibition celebrating the varied art of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. For these Baltic states, Symbolism came to represent their newfound freedom in the aftermath of war. And original forms, styles, and techniques quickly emerged. Now you can enjoy a stunning collection of the Symbolists' best work, many of which have never been exhibited outside of their home countries.
Polychrome sculpture is an element of 19th-century art that still has a relatively low profile. When you think fine art sculpture, it's likely you picture pure white marble, or perhaps a bronze patina. These styles continue to be the most curated and sought after works. Yet, there were many artists in the mid-1800s onward, such as Jean-Léon Gérôme and Paul Gauguin, who began experimenting with adding color to their sculptures. This courted controversy at the time of course (art critics are a reactionary bunch!). In a new exhibition aptly titled In Colour: Polychrome Sculpture in France 1850-1910, The Musée d'Orsay explores the impact and lasting influence of polychrome sculpture on the art world.
The Musée d'Orsay is home to France's national collection of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and Art Nouveau works. Its richness and marvels make it one of the most culturally important museums in the world. This ticket gets you skip the line access to this treasure trove of important (and beautiful) art.
The Musée d'Orsay is housed in the stunning Beaux-Arts style Gare d'Orsay railway station on the left bank of Paris's River Seine. It's rich in history, both in the works that are hung on its walls, and through the grandeur of the building itself. A recent renovation has given the museum more exhibition space and vibrantly colored gallery walls, to match the works on display.
The Musée d'Orsay's collection includes excellent examples of French art from 1848-1914, including many of the most significant Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings ever created. Significant and stunning works by painters including Gauguin, Monet, Manet, Degas, Renoir, Cézanne, and Van Gogh.
All of the works in the Musée d'Orsay are the product of the period 1848-1914, positioned between the works of the neighboring Louvre Museum's works, and the collection of the nearby Pompidou Centre.
With a diverse collection of artworks from one of the most dynamic periods of art, this airy former train station is the perfect place to come and get inspired.

It was a dream of mine to see Bouguereau's paintings in person.
