A Virtual Visit to the World of 19th Century Art

Pay a virtual visit to the Musée d'Orsay: a unique showcase for the glories of French Impressionsism. For the first time on CD-ROM, revolutionary virtual-reality technology lets you wander through its rooms one by one.

The Museum's extraordinary, wide-ranging collection spans the history of art from 1848 to 1914. Masterpieces of sculpture, painting and photography are presented in the context of the movements they represent, from Symbolism to Art Nouveau - but with special attention paid to Impressionsism and the Pont Aven School. The masters of the age - Van Gogh, Gauguin, Monet, Klimt, Courbet, Rodin and many more - are just a mouse-click away.

Examine the Museum's paintings up close with a built-in magnifier, as vivid animations bring the artists' visions to life. Rotate sculptures for all-round insights into their secrets.

All the while, commentaries from art historians provide vital back-ground to works from Le déjeuner sur l'herbe and the Ball at the Moulin de la Galette to the Gates of Hell. And historical and cultural narratives, on subjects as diverse as Zola the Art Critic and the Caillebotte Affaire put the art in the context of its time.

This is more than a guided tour of a rich treasure-house of artistic mastery. You the user can personalize the program, making the CD-Rom an evolving resource:

  • A guide suggests routes through the Museum that take into account your own interests
  • An album allows you to put together your own private collection
  • And you can exchange your impressions on the works, and refresh the Museum's galleries over the Internet
