Enjoy works by forerunners of modern art such as Gustave Courbet, Edgar Degas, Jean-FranÃ§ois Millet and female Impressionists Berthe Morisot, Marie Bracquemond and Eva GonzalÃ¨s.
This exhibition features more than 140 Salon, Realists, Impressionists and Post-Impressionists paintings, photographs and drawings from the mid-19th century to the early 20th century. â€œDreams and Reality: Masterpieces of Painting, Drawing and Photography from the MusÃ©e dâ€™Orsay, Parisâ€ explores the reaction of man towards modernity.
