Caisse des Depots
The Deposit and Consignment Office (CDC), sometimes simply called Caisse des Depots, is a public financial institution created in France in 1816. Placed under the direct supervision of Parliament, it operates in the public interest on behalf of the state and local governments, but also in competitive activities.
It is on Quai Anatole France.
Caisse des Dépôts is created by one of the great laws of the Restoration of April 28, 1816 to restore confidence in public finances, after the disorders of the First Empire. With its autonomous status, it can manage private funds outside the budget of the state and ensure the protection of savings. Beginning in 1816, it manages consignments and pensions of officials and invests the funds entrusted to its management.
The Musée d'Orsay is a museum in Paris, France, on the left bank of the Seine, housed in the former railway station, the Gare d'Orsay. It holds mainly French art dating from 1848 to 1915, including paintings, sculptures, furniture, and photography, and is probably best known for its extensive collection of impressionist masterpieces by popular painters such as Monet and Renoir. Many of these works were held at the Galerie nationale du Jeu de Paume prior to the museum's opening in 1986.
