Meet Bertrand Kerzreho
For me, the Musée d’Orsay has always been a very special place. I love the fact that it has been so many things to so many people – from a train station to a movie set, and now firmly established as one of the country’s prestigious Monuments Historiques.
Experience the exceptional
Today the Musée d’Orsay is home to more than 150,000 carefully curated pieces of art, from paintings and sculpture to furniture and photography. When I walk through its doors, I always feel like I’m stepping into a time machine and traveling back across the years.
What to expect
Inside this beautiful building you’ll discover a rich array of European and North American art from the 19th century. Many of the world’s most famous artists are on display here, drawing on diverse genres to create a fascinating feast for the eyes.
The museum is also appreciated for its instagrammable appeal, as it’s filled with natural light and plenty of artistic angles. My most-loved spot is standing behind the huge clock face to admire the city views, look carefully and you’ll see Le Meurice across the Seine.
Choosing just a few favourites for my must-see list isn’t easy, but it has to include ‘Angélus’ by Jean-François Millet and ‘Les Romaines de la Décadence’ by Tomas Couture. From the most well-known names, I think ‘Le Déjeuner sur l’Herbe’ by Edouard Manet and the majestic ‘La Nuit Étoilée’ by Vincent Van Gogh are the most emotive pieces on show.
