Renovation works from 4 September 2019 to 31 March 2020: the rooms presenting the 150 works from the permanent collection of the Musée de l'Orangerie will no longer be accessible to the public. Only Claude Monet's Nymphéas rooms, the temporary exhibition and the contemporary counterpoint Patrick Tosani (16 October 2019 - 17 February 2020) will be open to visitors.
The Orangerie Museum is a wonderful place, located in the very heart of Paris in the Tuileries garden. Entirely renovated, the museum allows you to discover with a natural and original light Monet’s Nymphéas (Water Lilies) and 146 other masterpieces of the Walter-Guillaume collection (Renoir, Cézanne, Modigliani, Matisse, Picasso, Derain, Soutine).
Giorgio de Chirico. Metaphysical painting
From 1 April to 13 July 2020
The exhibition Giorgio de Chirico. Metaphysical painting retraces the career and the artistic and philosophic influences of the artist Giorgio de Chirico from Munich to Turin, then to Paris where he discovered the artistic avant-garde of his era, and lastly Ferrare. The connections between the painter - discovered by Apollinaire and subsequently backed by the art dealer Paul Guillaume - and the Parisian cultural and literary circles will be highlighted as never before.
