In 2011, renovation works in certain areas were completed. For the gallery dedicated to Impressionists, the architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte created a place that recalls the dark gray bourgeois interiors where the paintings were exhibited. Solid glass benches designed by Tokujin Yoshioka were installed. The same Wilmotte has also transformed the salle des Colonnes in a space devoted to temporary exhibitions. Dominique Brard in his turn created five levels of exhibition in the Upstream pavilion, which is dedicated to decorative arts, with large painting formats and wall paintings by nabi artists. The collections of the musée d'Orsay reflect the diversity of artistic creation of the Western world from 1848 to 1914. Masterpieces presented here are countless. Regularly, large and prestigious exhibitions attracts a large crowds of visitors to this must-see museum. Finally, you will no doubt appreciate the restaurant which is located on the site (chandeliers, painted ceilings, gilt ...). Don't miss it for anything, both for its collections and for its building!
