One of Paris’s most beloved museums, the Orsay houses modern art from 1848 to 1914, and includes a stunning collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist masterpieces.  Get to know the real history behind those famous works with a knowledgeable specialist.  You’ll begin with Corot, the Barbizon School, early Manet and Degas on the first floor, in order to understand how these innovations paved the way for the Impressionists on the upper levels.  We’ll look closely at carefully selected works by Monet, Renoir, Cézanne, Gauguin, van Gogh, and Toulouse-Lautrec, with an eye for how each artist and generation influenced and challenged the next. The tour is designed to give you both a solid overview and an opportunity to know key masterpieces in the collection quite well.

Traveling with kids?  Check out Meeting the Impressionists: Orsay for Families (ages 6-12).
