The Louvre and Modern Art Museum Georges Pompidou also contributed and the collections cover an artistic period of time that spans from 184 to 1914. Once parked, begin your guided walking tour of the museum with your guide. You’ll have skip the lines priority access into the museum to escape the long lines. The highlights of the musée d Orsay works of art include the worlds most fabulous impressionist and post impressionist paintings by artists such as Van Gogh, Cézanne, Pissaro, Manet, Renoir, Toulouse-Lautrec or Monet.
