The Nouvel Orsay: An Impressionists Dream of Paris

January 26th, 2012

Musée d'Orsay re-opens in Paris:
A must see experience for 2012

Located in the 7th arrondissement, on the banks of the Seine and just a couple of Metro stops from Hotel de Vigny, the Musée d'Orsay is once again open for visitors.

Following major restoration and restructuring, the museum has been generating rave reviews for its ambitious project to add fresh perspective to iconic works... and after visiting it earlier this year we can understand why.

Creative Goals: Refurbishment, Reorganisation & Rehanging

One of the main aims of this project was to reorganise, re-hang and redecorate the settings of the major works, in order to create a living exhibition and a cohesive blend of artwork and environment. Through this the gallery hopes to inspire a series of thought-provoking questions, in line with the intentions of the original artists.

In addition to this, the re-opening to the public in October 2011 brought with it some other exciting changes. The former engine house of this one time train station - The Amont Pavilion - has been completely renovated and reconstructed... and is now the grand setting for the European schools of decorative art.

Impressionists and post-impressionists

All these changes have seamlessly managed to add to the beauty of the museum's greatest assets; its extensive - and stunning - collection of impressionist and post impressionist work. Some of the greatest masterpieces from the hands of Monet, Manet, Degas, Renoir, Cézanne, Seurat, Sisley, Gauguin and Van Gogh can once again be enjoyed within its walls... and it's a Parisian experience you will not want to miss.

Have a look at some of the excellent art on display at the Musée d'Orsay today...
