Musee D'Orsay is re-opening its doors this Fall. In perfect timing, Museyon Guides just released their recent tour guide ART + PARIS:IMPRESSIONISTS AND POST-IMPRESSIONISTS: The Ultimate Guide to Artists, Paintings and Places in Paris and Normandy which not only gives details about the museum but provides rich details regarding its history, magnificent replicas of the paintings and unknown facts about the artists.
Museyon Guides are distinctly different from the 'typical' city-museum tour guides. They offer a unique view of rich cultural cities – from the perspective of art history. In Art + Paris Impressionists and Post-Impressionists, travelers (or hopeful travelers!) can map out culturally rich tours providing stimuli to the eyes, mind and body.
Art + Paris: Impressionists and Post-Impressionists not only detail the well-known museums of Paris and Normandy, but the rich history behind the revolutionary artists. It creates a vivid portrait of life in the 19th century with a complete background course on Impressionism. From the Louvre to the seedy cabarets of Pigalle, readers discover the real-life places that inspired artists such as Manet, Degas, Renoir and Van Gogh.
