This combined ticket permits admission to the permanent collections and temporary exhibitions of both museums :
Housed in a former train station, the collections of the Musée d’Orsay are among the best known. They present all of the art work produced between 1848 and 1914, a decisive period in the history of art during which the masterpieces of the Impressionist movement were painted. You will be able to admire the work of great artists, such as: Manet, Degas, Monet, Renoir, Van Gogh, Gauguin and Courbet, and the work of the sculptors, Carpeaux, Rodin and Maillol.
In the Jardin de Tuileries in the heart of Paris lies the Musée de l’Orangerie, a gallery that has been entirely renovated to make the most of its natural light, in which visitors can now admire the full Water Lilies (Nymphéas in French) series by Claude Monet, as well as all 146 pieces of the Walter-Guillaume collection (works by Renoir, Cézanne, Modigliani, Matisse, Picasso, Derain, Soutine, etc.).
Musée d’Orsay exhibition:
Sérusier’s ‘The Talisman’, a prophecy of colour
29 January - 2 June 2019
Black models: from Géricault to Matisse
26 March - 21 July 2019
The exhibition is mainly concerned with the question of the model, and therefore the dialogue between the artist who paints, sculpts, engraves or photographs and the model who poses. In particular, it explores how the representation of black subjects in the major works of Theodore Géricault, Charles Cordier, Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux, Edouard Manet, Paul Cézanne and Henri Matisse… is evolving.
Musée d’Orangerie exhibition:
Franz Marc / August Macke. The adventure of the Blue Rider
Exhibition from 6 March to 17 June 2019
This exhibition presents two major figures of German Expressionism and the Der Blaue Reiter movement[The Blue Rider], Franz Marc (1880-1916) and August Macke (1887-1914). From 1910, these artists established a friendship based on their common interest in French art and more particularly, for Cézanne, Van Gogh, Gauguin and fauvism, which they discovered during their stay in Paris. In their first paintings, often painted outdoors, both express the same spiritual fascination with the landscape and nature.
