Housed in a
train station built for the 1900 World's Fair, the Musée d'Orsay is
known throughout the world for its rich collection of Impressionist
paintings including masterpieces as iconic as the Bal au Moulin de la
galette from Renoir or The room at Arles de Van Gogh. Its
collections include works of architecture, decorative arts and
photography in addition to traditional artistic fields (painting,
sculpture, graphic arts). They thus draw a broad panorama of French and European art from 1848 to 1914.
