The Musée d’Orsay holds mainly French art dating from 1848 to 1914 and is one of the largest art museums in Europe. The collection includes paintings, sculptures, furniture, and photography. It is most famous for its large collection of impressionist and post-Impressionist masterpieces.
The Musée d’Orsay contains many masterpieces of art and objects of historical significance. Below are just some of my favourites:
- “The Starry Night Over the Rhône” by Vincent van Gogh
- “The Luncheon on the Grass” by Édouard Manet
- “Dance at le Moulin de la Galette” by Pierre-Auguste Renoir
“The best way to keep one’s word is not to give it.” Napoleon Bonaparte
