Some of the Orangerie Highlights

Claude Monet’s Waterlilies in Musée de L'Orangerie.jpg

Claude Monet’s Waterlilies (1914-26)

The Orangerie has two rooms dedicated to enormous paintings of waterlilies by the great Monet. The rooms were designed by the painter himself, making it the only site-specific display of his work in the entire world. The experience of seeing these giant canvases in person should be on any art lover’s bucket list.

Amedeo Modigliani’s Paul Guillaume, New Pilot (1915)

Modigliani was a master of taking an unremarkable subject and turning it into an acrobatic display of forward thinking. Thanks to his experimentation, this simple portrait of a man dressed in a suit transforms into a forceful statement about modernity. The artist even employed cardboard and plywood to push the materials into strange new territory.

Paul Cezanne Apples and cookies in Orangerie Museum of Paris.jpg

Paul Cézanne’s Apples and Cookies (1880)

It would be nearly impossible to overstate the importance of Cézanne’s influence on the development of art in the late 19th century and throughout the 20th. In this still life, we see another step he took toward the invention of modern art — a field that he is widely credited with introducing to the world.

Auguste Renoir’s Young Girls at the Piano (1892)

If there was ever a master of the relaxing, sigh-inducing painting, it was Renoir. This painter knew how to focus on the essential elements of a scene, foregoing unnecessary detail in favor of a lush, painterly brushstroke that helps his subjects emerge from an ethereal background of pastel colors and dreamy forms.
