The Musée d'Orsay is an art museum covering the history of Western art between 1848 and 1914, with a special emphasis on French art of the nineteenth century. The museum has a renowned collection of Impressionist works. It also houses sculptures and applied art.
The museum was opened in 1986 in the former station of Gare d'Orsay. The Italian architect Gae Aulenti oversaw the renovation, which lasted from 1980 to 1986. In the past, the Gare d'Orsay was the seat of several railway lines with the south of France. Today, only four underground tracks are used for RER C trains.
The painters of Impressionist art are widely represented, such as Édouard Manet, Frédéric Bazille, Claude Monet, Auguste Renoir, Edgar Degas, Alfred Sisley, Georges Seurat, Paul Gauguin, Vincent van Gogh, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Paul Cézanne and Henri Rousseau .
