The 1898 Beaux-Arts railway station Gare d’Orsay was silenced in 1939 due to short platforms unsuitable for longer trains. Originally constructed for the Universal Exposition of 1900, it now houses the largest collection of impressionist & post-impressionist masterpieces in the world, by painters including Monet, Manet, Degas, Renoir, Cézanne, Seurat, Sisley, Gauguin & Van Gogh.
