Musée de l’Orangerie| Paris

I’ve visited Paris several times and even lived in the city for an entire year, but I never had the chance to visit Musée de l’Orangerie. A treat for Monet’s eight water-lily canvases (Nymphéas), painted 1909-26, and donated by the artist to be displayed in two specially conceived, elliptical rooms.


The museum is located at Jardin des Tuileries and Monet paintings are just one of the reasons why you should visit it. The prices aren’t expensive, it’s not very crowded and it has several other collections worth visit.

I’ve put together a selection of my favourite paintings:

Nymphéas – Monet
Nymphéas – Monet
Jeunes filles au Piano – Pierre-Auguste Renoir
Portrair de Madame PaulGuillaume au grand chapeau -Pierre-Auguste Renoir
Paysage de neige – Pierre-Auguste Renoir
Le Déjeuner sur l’herbe – Pierre-Auguste Renoir
Portrait de Madame Cézanne – Paul Cézanne
Danseuses espagnoles – Marie Laurencin
Femmes au chien – Marie Laurencin
Arlequin et Pierrot – André Derain
