Today, The Orsay and Orangerie museums are two unique places that house a world-class collection of French art. One is a former train station and the other a former orangery.
The most important impressionist works are on display in these museums. Including Monet’s famous Water Lilies, which can be discovered in the Musée de l’Orangerie, nicknamed “The Sistine Chapel of Impressionism”.
Take advantage of a guided tour of the two major cultural institutions in the center of Paris.
Let’s meet at the foot of the rhinoceros statue in front of the main entrance of the Orsay museum. We will discover the masterpieces of the Musée d’Orsay, starting with those of French Academism. Then we’ll head toward the impressionist and post-impressionist collection, with works by Manet, Monet, Degas, Renoir, Van Gogh…
After the visit of the Musée d’Orsay, we will stroll in the magnificent Tuileries garden to reach the Orangerie, established as a museum at the beginning of the 20th century. Once at the Orangerie we will discover Cézanne‘s studies of fruits and flowers, the exotic style of Matisse‘s seductive portraits, and we will trace the artistic phases of Picasso through his interpretations of nude models. Among the exhibits, the most notable work is the series of eight Water Lilies painted by Claude Monet that have a permanent home at the Orangery and that we will discover and enjoy together.
Are you ready to marvel at the works of these world-renowned artists, which make up the permanent collections and temporary exhibitions of these two museums?
