  1. Passport Musée de l'Orangerie - Fondation Claude Monet Giverny

Description

Though separated by 75 kilometres, the city of Paris and Giverny (Normandy) have something in common: the work of Claude Monet. To understand the origin of one of modern art’s greatest masterpieces, explore the Musée de l’Orangerie before or after discovering the painter’s home in Giverny. The combination ticket gives you access to both places. Once you’ve purchased it at one of the two venues, it also allows you to skip the lines at the second.

A singular masterpiece

At the Musée de l’Orangerie, discover the eight compositions in The Water Lilies collection, all of which were painted in the artist’s Giverny home, and bequeathed to France the day after the Armistice of November 11, 1918 (Remembrance Day), as a symbol of peace. In accordance with Monet’s express wishes, the paintings are displayed in two adjacent oval rooms that are bathed in natural light, which shines down through the magnificent glass roof.

Giverny, a source of inspiration

At the source of this masterpiece, is the painter’s home in Giverny, with its water lily pond. For over 40 years, and until his death in 1926, Giverny was Monet’s home, and the place where he created his art. As you walk through the Giverny grounds, you can still get a sense of the atmosphere that must have enveloped the place during the painter’s life. You will marvel at the setting of the pond punctuated by water lilies, willow tree branches, and the reflections of the trees and clouds, which all served as Monet’s richest source of inspiration.
