Musée d'Orsay
The largest collection of impressionist masterpieces.

Paris, France, Europe

Housed in a former railway station on the left bank of the river Seine in Paris, the Musée d’Orsay is one of the largest art museums in Europe. Before being transformed into a museum, the station was used to film Orson Well’s adaptation of Kafka’s “The Trial.” Focusing mainly on French art from 1848 to 1914, the museum is home to the best known impressionist and post-impressionist artists such as Degas, or van Gogh, and masterpieces such as Gustave Courbet’s The Artist’s Studio (1854–55), Édouard Manet’s Le Déjeuner sur l’herbe (1863; Luncheon on the Grass), and Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s Dance at Le Moulin de la Galette (1876; Bal du moulin de la Galette).
