This place, charming as a sophisticated palace, opened its doors in 1986 to every artistic creation of the occidental world which was made from 1848 to 1914 (works created earlier are in the Louvre). Its collection covers the widest array of expressions, from painting (with over 5000 works) to architecture, going as well through sculpture, decorative arts and photography. Amid the the paintings shown in the renovated and modernized galleries we find hundreds of masterwoks. Renoir's 'Le Moulin de la Galette' ('Galette's Windmill') next to the Cathedral series from Cezanne, Monet's 'Le bassin aux nymphéas' ('Water Lily Pond'), Courbet's 'L'origine du monde' (The Origin of the World'), Van Gogh's 'Nuit étoilée' ('Starry Night'), and Manet's "Olympia".
