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.

Picasso. Blue and Rose

18 September 2018 9 January 2019
The Musée d'Orsay and the Musée national Picasso-Paris are organising an exceptional event dedicated to Pablo Picasso's blue and rose periods. This exhibition is the first large-scale collaboration between our two museums. It features masterpieces and proposes a new interpretation on the years 1900-1906, a critical period in the artist's career which to date has not been covered in its entirety by a French museum....

The presentation of this exhibition at the Musée d'Orsay demonstrates the desire to include the young Picasso in his time and reconsider his work under the prism of his belonging to the nineteenth century.


The exhibition will bring together a large number of paintings and drawings with the aim of presenting a comprehensive overview of the artist's sculptures and engravings between 1900 and 1906.
