Classic tour 2h
Let’s meet at the foot of the Rhinoceros statue in front of the museum’s main entrance.
We’ll avoid the long lines and enter without waiting in the heart of this jewel to discover the masterpieces of the second half of the 19th century.
We will start by looking at some of the masterpieces of French Academism and we will relive the scandals of the works exhibited at the official salons before the creation of the Salon des Refusés and the Impressionist Salons. Together we will understand the evolution of art towards Impressionism and delve into the birth of the Impressionist movement: born from a small group of rebels who paved the way for this unique art form. We will explore the individual influences and styles of each artist such as Manet, Monet, Renoir, Degas, Cézanne and Van Gogh. Going back in time, you will learn how these images and messages changed the art world forever. Finally, we’ll end our visit by admiring the post-impressionist works, including the magnificent collection of works by Vincent Van Gogh.
This two-hour private (or group) tour is designed to provide an overview for first-time visitors, allowing you to discover the highlights of the museum as well as some of the lesser known treasures housed here.
