The exhibition Dal Musée d’Orsay. Impressionisti Tête à Tête at Complesso del Vittoriano in Rome presents a portrait of the Parisian society at the late-19th century, a period of great artistic, cultural and social change, as represented and witnessed by the Impressionists.

Over 60 paintings and sculptures from the Musée d’Orsay in Paris are on display, including work by renowned artists like Édouard Manet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Edgar Degas, Frédéric Bazille, Camille Pissarro, Paul Cézanne, Berthe Morisot and Auguste Rodin.

Among the masterpieces on display are The Balcony (1868) by Manet, an icon of the Parisian bourgeoisie of the late-19th century; Jeantaud, Linet et Lainé (1871) by Degas, which focuses on the faces of three young thoughtful industrial Parisians; and The Swing (1876) by Renoir, one of his first works where the light becomes the portagonist of the painting.
