Les Nymphéas

The Musée de l’Orangerie in Paris, France is a wonderful museum for impressionist art close to the river Seine. You’ll find it in the Jardins des Tuileries close to the Place de la Concorde. The building was finished in 1852 as a classic orangery for protecting plants.

In 1920 some special plants moved in: Claude Monets water lillies. Today it is the most important location to see the vast, up to 17 meters wide Nymphéas pictures. The museum contains also some other paintings by a limited number of painters like Renoir, Sisley and Gauguin.
