Visit the Musée de l'Orangerie—an art gallery of impressionist and post-impressionist paintings located in the west corner of the Tuileries Gardens next to the Place de la Concorde in Paris. Though most famous for being the permanent home for eight Water Lilies murals by Claude Monet, see the museum's other works by Paul Cézanne, Henri Matisse, Amedeo Modigliani, Pablo Picasso, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Henri Rousseau, Alfred Sisley, Chaim Soutine, and Maurice Utrillo, among others. Feel a closer connection between the two parts of the collection thanks to the new layout of the Musée de l’Orangerie: Water Lilies and the École de Paris (School of Paris) in the early 20th century. Enjoy the elegant, fluid, educational, and stimulating circuit. At the entrance to the collection, see large polyptychs by Joan Mitchell (loan from the Musée national d’Art moderne) and large-scale works by the modern 'primitives' (Picasso, Douanier Rousseau, Derain, Modigliani, Matisse, etc.).
