At the heart of the lovely Tuileries Garden in Paris' 1st arrondissement, not far from the Concorde and Tuileries Metro stations, the Orangerie Museum was fully renovated in 2006 and houses some remarkable Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings. An invitation to contemplation, Claude Monet's exceptional Water Lilies series is admirably displayed in two large oval rooms, so art-lovers can gaze upon his famous depictions of the changing light on the Giverny Lake…
The Orangerie Museum also houses the wonderful collection of Jean Walter and Paul Guillaume, assembled in the early 20th century by the art dealer Paul Guillaume and his wife Domenica, then further expanded by the latter after she was widowed then remarried to the architect Jean Walter. On display at the museum since 1984, this remarkable group includes paintings by such celebrated artists as Cézanne, Renoir, Gauguin, Picasso and Matisse.
After your visit, be sure to take a walk in the magnificent Tuileries Garden. With its charming ponds and many statues by Rodin, Maillol and Giacometti, it makes a fine addition to a day at the Orangerie Museum.
