asterpieces from the Musée d’Orsay in Paris to go on show in Italy: over 70 paintings from the most important collection of 19th-century art in the world may be admired at the Mart di Rovereto. The Musée d’Orsay possesses the most significant works in terms of number and quality of those artists who changed the course of the history of modern art at the end of the 19th century; in terms of Impressionism and post-impressionism, there is no more prestigious collection than that of the French museum, a fundamental venue for the study of Monet, Cézanne, Pissarro, Sisley, Renoir, Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Morisot, Vuillard, Bonnard, Denis, Courbet,
The project presents an exceptional selection of paintings, from the great era of Impressionism to the threshold of the avant-garde movements: the scandalous realism of Gustave Courbet in his famous L’origine du monde (1866), on show for the first time in Italy.
The “A revolution in looking. Masterpieces from the Musée d’Orsay” exhibition offers a fresh look at that crucial passage that laid the basis for the European avant-garde art movements of the early 20th century.
