Seeing the Musée d'Orsay
Collectif, Serge Lemoine, direction
The Musée d'Orsay scientific team, under the supervision of Serge Lemoine, has endeavoured to retrace the history of the museum and its collections, all disciplines taken into account.
The chronological approach, the focus on the major artists of the museum, the quality of the iconography allow readers to discover the wealth of the collections and to understand the major issues of this eventful period.
Resulting from close collaboration between the Musée d'Orsay staff and the magazine L'Oeil, this book offer readers a clear and accessible synthesis as a complement to a visit to the Musée d'Orsay and a way to prepare a future visit.
