- The Musée d'Orsay has one the finest collections of Impressionist art in the world with masterpieces by Monet, Renoir, Degas and Cézanne - don't miss it!
- The Musée de l'Orangerie has eight stunning Water Lilies bathed in natural light, and a host of other masterpieces by Matisse, Picasso, Cézanne and more!
- Two of Paris's finest museums, sitting across from one another on the Seine. Seeing these two museums is as close to a perfect day in the French capital as you can hope to have!
The Musée d'Orsay and the Musée national Picasso-Paris present their first large-scale collaborative exhibition, dedicated to Pablo Picasso's blue and rose periods. The exhibition will bring together a large number of Picasso's early paintings and drawings, with the aim of re-framing the works of the young Picasso in the context of 19th-century art. The exhibition also features masterpieces, some of which, like La Vie, are being presented for the first time in France.
The cruel stories of Paula Rego is an exhibition exploring the highly topical work of the acclaimed London Group's sole female member, Paula Rego. Obsessed by the literary and cultural visions of the 19th century, Rego intertwines fantastical references with strong autobiographical elements and the social and political issues of contemporary life. The dark narratives of her paintings evoke twisted visions of cruelty, social codes, and women's issues in strange times. Her work has never been more relevant than now.
The exhibition explores the complex artistic relationship between the celebrated impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir and his filmmaker son, Jean Renoir. It presents the uniqueness of Renoir Jr.'s films as emerging in response to the work of his father and his 19th-century contemporaries.
Shimmering light, sun-dappled water, and of course: water lilies. This combo ticket is your key to unlock two of Paris's finest museums. The Musée d'Orsay's collection has works by Gauguin, Monet, Manet, Degas, Renoir, Cézanne, and Van Gogh, among others. The Musée de l'Orangerie is most famous for its massive Water Lilies, but also includes Cézanne, Matisse, Picasso, Rousseau, and more.
Situated in the stunning Beaux-Arts style Gare d'Orsay railway station, opposite the Tuileries Gardens, this building is a city landmark. This museum displays art from 1848 to 1914. Artistically, it spans Impressionism and Art Nouveau. With this ticket you'll slip in a dedicated entrance, bypassing the ticket-hungry throngs outside, and enter a world of serene landscapes and poetry in paint.
Musée de l'Orangerie
The museum has two prestigious collections. Water Lilies, the artistic culmination of Claude Monet’s artistic journey, these eight paintings are housed in two oval rooms, encouraging visitors to gaze in endless contemplation. The Walter-Guillaume Collection covers the first decades of the 20th century. The works here, by Renoir, Cezanne, Modigliani, Picasso and more, represent both Impressionism and Modern Classicism.
