The Age of the Impressionists
This tour explores each of the major modern art movements from the period of the Musée d'Orsay's collections (1848-1914). We 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. The Orsay's famed collection of Impressionist and post-Impressionist painting will be the primary focus of our visit. We look closely at 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.
Rates. €105 for individuals, or €90 per person for parties of two or more. Includes price of admission. €20 surcharge to guarantee that your party has a one-on-one seminar with the instructor, without other parties. 4 person maximum.
