What you'll do
You will explore the Orsay Museum to admire one of the most important Impressionist collection in the world. Paris is famous as the place where the Impressionism was born, an artistic movement that signed the beginning of a new Era, when the science and the progress made painting the best way to analyse the reality and the light, giving to us unforgettable artworks. From the Realism and the Pre-impressionist movements (bases of the main Impressionism, with Courbet and Manet among others), to the most important artists of the Impressionist movement (Monet, Renoir, Degas, Cézanne and many others), including also great characters who moved in a transverse way, experiencing different techniques and styles in a Post-Impressionist moment (Van Gogh, Gauguin, Rodin). All these artists are hosted in an amazing industrial archaeology site, that contributes to making this experience unique. This is a tour about Modernity, in a museum that is also the architectonic symbol of a new lifestyle and a new way of thinking, a symbol also of the entrance in the 20th century. Tickets are not included in the price and you should buy them before the tour to save time and skip the line.
https://www.instagram.com/martina_paris_84/ I am an Italian art historian based in Paris. I studied in this beautiful city, fell in love with it and eventually moved here with my family. I have a PhD in History of Art, I have always worked in this field, both in Rome and Paris. I have been working as a certified guide since 2016 in Paris, exploring the most beautiful museums and monuments with customers and friends from all over the world. I love my job: Art is definitely my universe, and the most important tool of knowledge to understand a culture. For me it’s also a way to show my culture and it’s relationship with the French one.
