Orsay Museum, Paris
The most outstanding museum of the Nineteenth Century. Your private VIP curated museum tour
150 Must-see paintings.
A digital Zoom visit with your private art historian, our plan B in Covid 19 / Corona times. I will show you my image bank of paintings inside. And give you a high quality tour.
At the moment, most museums in the world are either closed or very limited in entry. That is a rough, troublesome time for us art-lovers. But this is also the perfect moment to learn more about a a number of western painters, art schools, era’s etc. I can guide you digitally through many, many art museums on Zoom. With the help of my 10.000+ image bank of my own photographs.
In better times, after re-opening: A visit with your own art historian, flying in for you.
When all is well again…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.
1. Expensive option: You can hire me and I will fly in to be your own outstanding private “Professore”. At your cost, I will fly in especially for you and I will guide you after spending a hotel night. And then a very memorable museum visit or two.
2. Less expensive option: I know many first-rate art historian colleagues all over Western Europe. Therefore I know just the company/guide to arrange an excellent museum visit for you. I work very closely with these art history women and men and they are brilliant.
