Across the Seine from The Louvre is the Musee d'Orsay. Formerly a train station during the early part of the 20th century, the Orsay was converted into a museum in 1986, and the bulk of its collections consist of pieces created between 1850 and 1914. On the fifth floor of the museum are works representing the greatest names in Impressionism including Monet, Manet, Degas, Van Gogh, and Renoir among others. Impressionism began in France in the late 1800s and, although critics came down heavily on early Impressionists (the term itself was an insult coined by a critic in response to one of Monet's paintings), some of the most popular and well recognized pieces of art are creations from this movement. Aside from some of the greatest works of Impressionism , about 2 million visitors per year also view the Orsay's other collections representing photography, modernism, decorative arts, and sculpture. In total, over 78,000 works are housed at the Orsay. The museum is open from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. most days. On Thursdays, the museum doors do not close until 9:45 p.m. Entrance fees are approximately $10 American and are included in the Paris Museum Pass. Admission is free to everyone the first Sunday of every month. The Art Institute of Chicago has an excellent and extensive collection of Impressionist and Post Impressionist art. They began collecting it before it became popular. The LA County Museum of Modern Art also has a nice collection of Impressionist art, as does MoMA in New York.
