The museum also strives to promote art by organizing festivals, special shows, exhibitions, conferences and concerts on a regular basis. Shining on the gallery walls, the paintings reveal idyllic and rural scenes, and abstract and cubist art. This enormous variety of art reflects the tension between adhering to the old aesthetics and absorbing the new era. Placidly spread throughout the first floor, the early mid-19th century paintings are visions of ideal beauty. In Alexandre Canabel's Birth of Venus, a world of fair goddesses and mythic heroes float in front of one's eyes. Before long people had had enough of fantasy-land and in came a new movement - Realism. Realism shows the hardships of everyday life. On the third floor, the fresh life of photography breathed new vitality into painting. Art could not continue to record reality when the camera did that flawlessly. The grand effect of the Railway station turned to a museum is a treat for modernists and traditionalists alike having an airy, beautiful station of pillars and stucco rosettes, with an enormous glass-arched ceiling that flooded it with natural light.
