Musee d’Orsay is located in the former Orsay railway station, built for the Universal Exhibition of 1900. The national museum of the Musée d’Orsay opened to the public in 1986 to show the great diversity of artistic creation in the western world between 1848 and 1914. It was formed with the national collections from three sources: the Louvre museum, for the works of artists born after 1820 or coming to the fore during the Second Republic; the Musée du Jeu de Paume, which since 1947 had been devoted to Impressionism; and lastly from the National Museum of Modern Art, which only kept works of artists born after 1870.
