...a journey through the invention of art. Let's meet the artists who dared
to create a new world with our Musée d'Orsay private tour
Before Impressionism, artists could only work for Kings and religious leaders, so their art was about anything but art. But in the 19th century revolutions happen in the art world, and Manet will make it possible for Monet, Renoir, Degas and others to paint what they want, how they want it.
Discover why works who do not seem revolutionary to our eyes, depicting peaceful and sunny Sunday afternoons, were subjected to so much scorn and insults, and mark a major breakthrough in the history of painting and sculpture.
Embark on a colourful journey with Manet, Monet, Renoir, Degas, Cézanne, Van Gogh and Gauguin. We will also discover Rodin's achievements in sculpture...
It will be an occasion to learn to look at brushwork to be able to identify by yourself Monet, Renoir, Degas and more.
"Colour! What a deep and mysterious language, the language of dreams." - Paul Gauguin
