Every day since the lockdown, the Musée d’Orsay has published on his Instagram account the painting of a landscape carefully chosen from his collections. A little bit of nature is welcome in our Instagram feeds.
The most beautiful landscapes of the Musée d’Orsay
To cheer up our days and stimulate our curiosity, the Musée d’Orsay offers virtual and fun activities, such as exhibitions and podcasts dedicated to children. But there is more: the Parisian temple of Impressionism brings together all painting enthusiasts with a daily appointment on Instagram.
Every day since the start of the lockdown, the Musée d’Orsay has destined its Instagram account – followed by 925,000 followers – to publish a painting with natural landscapes of land or sea, chosen from its collections. Each painting is enriched with comments and anecdotes about the work and the artist. And then it goes further: invites the Internet user to read the in-depth analysis of the painting on his site where about 1,000 works are commented in a very in-depth way.
This bucolic series started with Une Matinée, danse des nymphes (1850) by Camille Corot to continue with the great masters of the genre: Millet, Monet, Cézanne, Caillebotte, Van Gogh, Klimt …
A virtual meeting that enhances our imagination and refines our culture.
