Paris- Musée d'Orsay
Six Continents

Now presented on the esplanade in front of the Musée d'Orsay,

the Six Continents were designed for the l'Exposition universlle de 1878 at the palais du Trocadèro (Trocadèro palace), and had been lying in a public rubbish dump in Nantes since 1963.  The Musée d'Orsay secured them in exchange for a painting by Sisley for the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Nantes.
