This splendid collection of Impressionist art is beautifully presented in an expansive space (formerly the Belle Epoque-era Gare d’Orsay railway station). The collection represents the work of all the masters of Impressionism. The artists range from classic Impressionist masters Edgar Degas, Edouard Manet, Claude Monet, and Pierre-August Renoir to Post-Impressionist artists such as Pierre Bonnard, Paul Cezanne, and Vincent van Gogh; the Pointillists (Georges Seurat, Paul Signac); and Bohemian artists like Toulouse Lautrec. Some of the museum’s most famous pieces include Claude Monet’s The Magpie, Gare Saint-Lazare, Poppy Field, and Luncheon on the Grass; Vincent van Gogh’s self-portrait and Starry Night; and Renoir’s Dance at Moulin de la Galette, which depicts a festive party scene in Montmartre. The Orsay Museum is among the best places to visit in Paris to get an overview of Impressionist art history-from the gentle brush strokes of Monet to the wild, colorful scenes of Gauguin. The museum also has two cafes and an upscale restaurant, which is worth the splurge. Formerly part of the Hotel d’Orsay and listed as a Historic Monument, the museum’s restaurant features gilded ceilings and sparkling chandeliers.
Photographer Victor Guidini, who lives in London, has been photographing tourists in the capital of England since 2013. In recent years he has been doing photo shoots in France. “It all started when a customer who had done an essay in London asked if I would be available to shoot in Paris. At first I thought it would be difficult to be a profitable business, but I organized all the logistics that facilitated the rehearsals. Traveling by the Eurostar trains, I get to Paris in around 2 hours, and without all the waiting and paperwork that a travel area has. After considering the risks and investments required for this journey, I embraced the opportunity, “says the photographer. See more at Fotografo em Paris e Londres. Since then, Victor has been doing photographic rehearsals in the city on a regular basis, and says there is a growing demand for his services. “Some dates are well sought out, such as during the European summer, and many people make reservations months in advance.”
