Highlighting the world's most renowned Impressionists, Post-Impressionists, and Modern artists in comparison to the Musee d'Orsay's collection, Galerie d'Orsay is delighted to bring the City of Light during its brightest time to Boston.
D’Orsay and D’Orsay A new collection inspired by our namesake & muse – Musée d’Orsay, Paris
All eyes were on Paris in 1900, at a time when art and science flourished in one of the cultural capitals of the world. On July 14th, the modern train station, Gare d’Orsay, was inaugurated as Paris hosted the World Fair. What began as a train station 116 years ago has become one of the most beloved and celebrated museums in the world. Honoring the fathers of Impressionism, including Camille Pissarro, Auguste Renoir and Eduard Manet; the poster boys of the illustrious La Belle Epoque, Henri Toulouse-Lautrec and Jules Cheret; and two of the greatest visionaries of Post-Impressionism into Modernism, Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso; the museum’s extensive collection continues to delight art lovers as they stroll the grand museum halls.
One hundred years later, our gallery owner, Sallie Hirshberg, opened our doors with the Musée d’Orsay as her muse as she established the premiere gallery for the finest in Master Works in Boston. Awed by the d’Orsay during her first visit, the d’Orsay compelled her to pursue fine art and drives her passion to this day. As we celebrate our 16th anniversary this fall, we pay homage to our muse and inspiration, highlighting our finest in Impressionist, Belle Epoque, Post Impressionist and Modern Master works alongside Musee d’Orsay’s phenomenal collection. Featuring artists Pissarro, Renoir, Manet, Eugene Boudin, Mary Cassatt, Toulouse-Lautrec, Cheret, Picasso and Henri Matisse, we invite you to join us as we bring the City of Light during its brightest time to Boston.
