American Friends of the Musée d'Orsay (AFMO)

American Friends of the Musée d'Orsay (AFMO) Strengthening ties between Americans & the Musée d’Orsay & the Musée de l'Orangerie while supporting one of the world’s greatest collections of French Art.
AFMO was begun by American citizens who recognized the contribution made by the Musée d’Orsay to American museums and to the American public. In 2008, following a highly successful collaboration between the Art Institute of Chicago and the Musée d’Orsay, Guy Cogeval, the new Président of the Orsay, and Olivier Simmat, Director of International Relations and Development, voiced their enthusiastic support for the formation of an “American Friends.” A membership in the American Friends of the Musée d’Orsay offers those who are passionate about art and French culture rare access to the Orsay collections and the pride of supporting two museums.

We support: Exhibitions in France & the USA Supporting the museum’s ongoing commitment to share works of art and collaborate with American museums, enriching exhibitions viewed in the United States and in Paris. Education resources in English We encourage and assist the museum’s efforts to include English in all of its education efforts—wall text, tours, electronic and print resources. Library and archives AFMO promotes the seldom seen, but very used, documentation library. Capital improvements to enhance the experience of museum visitors AFMO supports building renovations to enable state-of-the art settings for more than a million Americans who visit the much loved museums. American art included in exhibitions AFMO supports the Orsay’s inclusion of contemporary, and earlier American artists. Acquisitions and Restoration AFMO supports collection restoration, and acquisition of new works.

Mission: AFMO raises public awareness and financial support for the Musée d’Orsay and the Musée de l’Orangerie, located in Paris, France. These tax-exempt funds support exhibitions, education, building renovations, and provide cultural enrichment for Americans in the United States and Paris. AFMO also acquires works of art to lend and eventually gift to the museum.

Restoration of Vincent Van Gogh's "Houses at Auvers" (1890) at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston

Over the years, dirt that’s collected on the surface of Van Gogh’s “Houses at Auvers” (1890) has been trapped under varnish. In May, watch MFA conservator Lydia Vagts as she cleans the canvas in our “Conservation in Action” gallery, removing unwanted varnish and grime. The project is made possible by Bank of America.

This week's featured artwork is THE FLOOR SCRAPERS (1875) by Gustave Caillebotte, part of the permanent collection at the Musée d'Orsay.

The painting divided opinion in Parisian art circles. Considered as a "vulgar subject matter", it was rejected by France's most prestigious art exhibition, the Salon. It is now one of the most iconic artworks of the Musée d'Orsay.
