Jardin des Tuileries, Place de la Concorde
Concorde on the 1, 8, 12 lines
Set in the southwest end of the Tuileries Gardens is the Orangerie Museum. The collection is made up of 144 paintings, predominantly by André Derain. There are also around 24 Renoirs, and about 24 of Soutines, fourteen Cezannes, a dozen by Picasso and Matisse, and some by Henri Rousseau, Utrillo, Modigliani, Marie Laurencin Van Dongen, Sisley, Soutine and Monet.
The collection was given to France by Jean Walter and Paul Guillaume, on the stipulation that the works must always be exhibited together. It is very much a reflection of the fine and eclectic tastes of these two art mavens.
Don't neglect to visit the basement Oval Rooms, where Monet's Waterlily series is on permanent display.
This jewel of a museum doesn't require marathon endurance to see it all and then return to your favorites for a second look.
