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.).
Franz Marc / August Macke. The adventure of the Blue Rider
Until 17 June 2019
This exhibition presents two major figures of German Expressionism and the Der Blaue Reiter [The Blue Rider] movement, Franz Marc (1880-1916) and August Macke (1887-1914). These artists forged a friendship in 1910 based on their shared interest in French art and more specifically in Cézanne, Van Gogh, Gauguin and Fauvism, who they discovered during their time in Paris.
The Musée de l’Orangerie ticket is included in the Paris Region Pass - Experience.
- The museum is open on public holidays except 1 May and the morning of 14 July.
