Musée de l'Orangerie


The musée de l’Orangerie, located in the heart of Paris in a former orange grove in the Jardin des Tuileries, is a museum dedicated to two art movements: Impressionism and Post-Impressionism. Thus, it is possible to observe the works of most famous painters of this period such as Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, Paul Cezanne, Paul Gauguin and Henry Matisse. Located in a former greenhouse, facing the Jeu de Paume and near the Place de la Concorde, the musée de l'Orangerie enjoys great natural light thanks to its large windows which can house, in large oval rooms specially furnished, the collection "Nymphéas" of eight paintings by Claude Monet, making the museum a famous place of arts in Paris.

The painter, himself, also chose the musée de l’Orangerie to house his donations to France. The Orangerie Museum is attached since 2010 to the musée d'Orsay, the other Parisian museum dedicated to Impressionism and Post-Impressionism movements. The museum houses the largest collection of works of art by Jean Walter and Paul Guillaume, which includes 144 paintings (by Cezanne, Renoir, Picasso, Modigliani, Monet, Matisse etc) painters who accompanied the transition from impressionism to abstract art between 1870 and 1930.
