Vintage plate 2020

This is a rather impressive collection of Western art, from the Renaissance to the 20th century, in a building built by Le Corbusier in 1959. It houses the stunning collection of Kōjirō Matsukata (1865-1950) and includes paintings by Courbet, Delacroix, Pissarro, Cézanne, Gauguin, Monet, Cottet, Renoir, etc. as well as sculptures by Rodin, Bourdelle and Maillol. For some, this museum is simply Orsay Museum surrounded by a large park!

    Un excellent musée qui propose une collection permanente ouverte gratuitement aux étrangers. Mais également de superbes expositions temporaires.
    Devant le musée, réalisé par Le Corbusier, on peut y voir la fameuse La Porte de l'Enfer de Rodin !

    Incontournable, même si l'on ne va pas au Japon pour voir de l'art occidental. Superbe collection, par contre pas le bâtiment le plus réussi du Corbusier. Profiter d'être à Ueno pour voir les pandas et le musée national...

    C'est Orsay entouré d'un parc magnifique.
    Fantastiques collections d'œuvres du XIXe siècle français, sans lacune aucune. Tous les artistes majeurs sont représentés de Rodin à Renoir en passant par Puvis de Chavanne , Caillebote, Courbet, Gauguin, Van Gogh, Delacroix ou Ingres et des dizaines d'autres . Trop riche !
    GRANDIOSE, mérite qu'on s'y enferme 3 bonnes heures pour une bonne imprégnation.
