Since its opening in 1986, the Orsay Museum has enriched its collections (by buying or from donations) with thousands of new acquisitions. In only six years, from 1990 to 1996, have entered the museum: 400 paintings, a thousand pastels and drawings, a hundred sculptures, medals and art objects; 5800 architectural and plans, and 12 300 photographs. How can a museum that collects masterpieces from the most sought after periods, acquire so many new pieces in so little time? Bought acquisitions, donations and loans: how does the museum function with these three possibilities ?
