Orsay Museum, Paris

The most outstanding museum of the Nineteenth Century. Your private VIP curated museum tour

15 Must-see paintings. 1500 other works of art.

A visit with your own art historian, flying in for you.

I will be your private professore, travelling in from Amsterdam, Holland specially for you. Join me in Paris to visit this outstanding museum of the Nineteenth century, in paintings and in design, and furniture. Extra halls have opened up during the last few years and private collectors have yielded their additional treasure to this outstanding museum.

Please note, this is a high level offer. Practicalities: I live in Amsterdam, Holland and do NOT run a travel agency.  I do however provide Fabulous international museum tours. The plan is that you contract me for one or more days as your private ‘Professore’ and offer full transport to that city, plus hotel accommodation in the same place you will stay. Excellent idea to be there at 9.15 to beat the waiting lines. We will spend quality time together in mornings and early afternoons.

 

The French state has brought all of the important 19th C state collections together in one humongous building, a former train station on Seine River. Since the opening year, collections have grown in number and quality by donations and  purchases.

One of the amazing objects in the Orsay is a Huge wooden model of the inside of the Opera building.

 

Van Gogh, Church in Auvers-sur-Oise. In a frenzy, he produced 2 paintings per day. Died after two months.

Cutaway model, XXL size, of the Opera by architect Garnier.

Paul Serusier, Talisman. This is a key object in the development to Post-Expressionism.
