The Musée d'Orsay is a relatively new French national museum that was created to present Western art from the period 1848 - 1914. Housed in a former railway station, since its opening in 1986 the museum has become one of the leading European art museums. The collection includes painting, sculpture, photography and the decorative arts. The museum is especially known for its fine collection of impressionist paintings which is the largest of its kind in the world. Painters such as Manet, Monet, Cezanne, Van Gogh and Renoir are presented here.
