"Monet" Musée de l'Orangerie Tip by cjg1

Musée de l'Orangerie, Paris: 25 reviews and 86 photos

My wife loves Monet and this is her favorite Museum in which to view his work. I have to say the canvases are quite impressive. The works are displayed in start white rooms which only makes the colors of the paint more vivid to the eye. I was also surprised at the sheer scale of the art. I never thought they were that big in reality until I stood next to them myself.

This is definitely a must see for a Monet fan or a fan of Impressionism.
