The boundary dates of the works included in the collection were adopted - the year 1848 - the beginning of the Second French Republic and 1914 - the beginning of the First World War. In addition to Impressionism, the collection includes various works of almost all styles of the period and many individual artists of the 19th and early 20th centuries.

The walls inside the building are painted in different colors to make it easier to find your way around: gray is reserved for the Impressionists, dark blue for the Post-Impressionists, and red for the collection of European decorative arts.
