5.0 out of 5 stars A detailed guide to this famous gallery 6 Mar 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
When touring a museum it is almost imposible to follow the museums guide and look at the pictures and other objects at the same time. With this helpful guide you can swat upin advance which is very useful

This is a very well designed book, beautiful to look at and comprehensive in its coverage. Its pocket size makes it ask to be picked up frequently. Unfortunately, like "Louvre", the other book in the same series, the English translation is somewhat quirky. This spoilt the pleasure of reading somewhat but the design, superb images and layout make it a book I shall keep picking up!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value 29 Aug 2008
I purchased this volume for a trip with a school party (GCSE & A level) that included the Musée d'Orsay and the Louvre.

The book, although weighty, is ideally shaped to live in a handbag, manbag, or even a roomy pocket (although in that case, get the Louvre one as well and balance yourself so as not to look like Quasimodo...).

The pictures are clear, the notes are superb, and I certainly wouldn't have been without it. Hundreds of pictures, hundreds of pages. All for £7 or so. Brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Musee D'Orsay Book - FANTASTIC 23 Sep 2013
I bought this book prior to visiting Paris & the Musee D'Orsay.
It is a beautiful book with excellent images of the paintings & objects in this fantastic museum.
Not only do I now have a beautiful memento of my visit, I used it in the museum itself to give me explanations of the objects I viewed. It also gives information about the artists and where their works are located in the museum.

It is is a bit heavy, but small enough to carry with you.

I can't recommend this book highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive, in a small package 8 May 2011
By Bobette Rife - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am sure it was difficult for the author to select what to share, and what to leave out, but this book gives a very nice overview of the museum. The layout of the book is convenient (according to history, and locations of various works). The book looks small, but it is heavy! So, it may not be one to pack in your bag for your trip to Paris, but it will do very nicely at acclimating you to the museum, and being a lovely reminder for later.
5.0 out of 5 stars Back to Paris Using a Book 18 Oct 2012

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The book is an excellent reminder of my visit to Orsay museum. I remember many of the pieces from the museum but the book allows me to learn more about each painting and sculpture. I hope to make it back one day but until then I will continue to use this excellent book.
5.0 out of 5 stars musée d'Orsay 9 Jun 2012
By James E. Thomson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a favorite museum of mine. This book takes you through the museum and has pictures and information about each work of art. It is very easy to follow a path through the museum and get a better understanding of the art that is on display.
