    Description:

    The Gare d'Orsay was opened in 1900 (to coincide with the Exposition Universelle) but with cessation of rail service in 1939 to the station because of the short platforms, lay abandoned until it was transformed into an art gallery and re-opened as the Musée d'Orsay in 1986.

    Description:

    Girault had done temporary structures for Exposition Universelle, Paris, of 1889 and of 1900. He also erected two structures that were intended to outlast the 1900 exhibition: the Petit Palais, which was entirely his own work, and the Grand Palais, of which he was principal architect. The façades are interpretations of 18th-century French architecture and the Petit Palais in particular is an obvious allusion to the stables of the château at Chantilly, which were built (1721-1735) by Jean Aube…
