Description

Enjoy 2 hours tour of the second most visited museum in Paris accompanied by a fully certified guide and with a small group of maximum 6 people. The visit will bring adults and children back in time to the year 1900 when Paris became the capital of the arts. Such renowned artists as Millet, Manet, Courbet, Monet among others, documented the social changes of a new century, shocked viewers and experienced rejection.

Let's dive into one of france's most wonderful museums, the orsay museum. If you are visiting Paris, this is the one place to not miss. Meet your guide at the ' elephant sculpture'located just outside the museum, skip the long lines and discover a world of rebellious artists. In 1874, a group known as the Anonymous Society of Painters, Sculptors and Engravers  presented an exhibition in Paris that would bring about a radical break from artistic conventions and launch one of the most popular movements in art history. Their works were considered scandals and critics would treat them as crazy. It’s hard to imagine, now, that the quality of brushwork or the choice of subject in a painting could shock viewers, but for 19th-century Paris, these paintings represented something akin to a revolution. In this visit both adults and children will discover  not only masterpieces such as Manet's Olympia, Monet's Poppy field, Degas's ballet dancers or Van Gogh's bedroom  but also a unique life story hidden behind each of these daring painters who fought to obtain recognition.
