Ce vei face

We will meet by the bronze statue of the Elephant at the entrance of the museum, our tour will last 2 hours. Limited to six people, small private tour. Your museum ticket is valid all day and you can explore the collection after the tour has finished. Stay for lunch, there are restaurants inside the museum that I can point you towards. The tour price doesn’t include the museum ticket, can you please buy it at the Orsay website.

Orsay is the museum the French love to visit. No wonder, because about 80 percent of the art on display is from France. Re-opened in 1986 this converted railway station is famous for the Impressionist paintings in its collection - Monet, Renoir, Cézanne, Pissarro, Degas & the Post Impressionists Seurat, Van Gogh, Gauguin. My tour will take you to the origins of that famous rebellion they created in the 19th century, it will be a walk through the art history of the mid to late 19th century. I’ll put into context the significance of the impressionists revolution for the art of its time, why it was first rejected by the French public, but how it is now admired the world over. The French have always loved a rebel, there will be a few to see on the way such as Millet, Courbet & Manet. We will start with the Salons of the 1840’s dominated by two opposing masters Delacroix & Ingres and end with the individuality of two tempestuous friends Van Gogh & Gauguin.
Other things to note
One tip. Thursday’s at the Orsay are sometimes quieter. The museum stays open late into the evening, closing around 21.30 if you want to avoid the crowds. The start time can be flexible, mornings or afternoons according to your schedule & mine.

Come explore the museums of Paris with me. I’m an Irish artist (BA Fine Art), specialist decorator. I’m also now, for the past 6 years, a Paris Museum Guide. I’ve known the city for over 30 years, originally coming to work as a scenic artist on the Disneyland theme park. I now share my experience, knowledge and passion of art history as a professional licensed Guide-Conférencier (CNAM Paris).

We meet outside beside one of the bronze sculptures, the ‘Elephant caught in a trap’ (Jeune éléphant pris au piège) by Emmanuel Fremiet. Cloakroom and Restrooms are available at the entrance. We have 2 hours together and you can then take a ‘pause café’ afterward and explore this great collection by yourself.
