What you'll do

Do you know that Impressionism was the art movement that led to a major transformation in the world of art history? There is always that confusing question: Who was Manet and who was Monet? Can you believe that Van Gogh was one of the poorest artist in history? Do you know that Paris that we are seeing today was created in the 19th century? We will explore art of the 19th century through amusing, fascinating and funny stories, starting off with the French Academy, describing the art of the rebellious Courbet, we will see how the art of the bon-vivant Manet influenced the creation of the Impressionist movement, we will explore art of sun-dappled fields, bright colours and crowded Parisian cafes in one of the best collections in the world of Manet, Monet, Renoir, Degas, van Gogh and Cézanne. Let the colours and images take us in the world of modern Paris of 19th century! We will see how everything is connected, and how art has always have been a reflection of society and ourselves. We will be a SMALL GROUP navigating through art history and the Orsay's gems that you’ve just heard about and seen in books! Are you ready for this art journey in the the Orsay with Nev :)?

Nevena

I am art historian, finished my second master in Sorbonne university and I’m currently taking my Ph.D. in art history in the university of Lisbon and Evora in Portugal. I am a professional guide licensed by the French Ministry of Culture for the last 3 years. I don't consider this a 'job', it's more like having the pleasure of sharing my passion and the knowledge, as well as seeing people enjoying and participating in this journey through time in art with me.
