Item description for Orsay: Sculpture by Anne Pingeot...
The Mus,e d'Orsay is housed in the former Gare d'Orsay, built by Victor Laloux for the World Fair of 1900. The profuse and constantly changing light, entering via Laloux's large metal vault, shows that sculpture, rather than more light-sensitive works has been given pride of place. This book, alone of its kind, brings together 150 of the Mus,e d'Orsay's finest works. The objects are grouped together by movement, such as Neoclassicism, Romanticism, Impressionism. In addition, two of the collection's leading lights Carpeaux and Rodin are featured individually.

Reviews - What do customers think about Orsay: Sculpture?
Incredible quality Mar 20, 2004
I have just recieved Orsay Sculpture in the mail and I was immediately transported back to my last Orasy visit. The quality of the book, i.e. paper and the photographs are excellent. I will be returning to Paris in the next couple of months and look forward to visiting the Orsay again.
