LE MUSÉE DE L’ORANGERIE
Inwood loves Le Musée de l’Orangerie, temple of the impressionist painting
Le musée de l'Orangerie is a museum of impressionist and post-impressionist pieces located in the famous Jardin des Tuileries. The impressionist movement is an artistic movement from the 19th century. The painters of this movement highlighted fleeting impressions as well as fluid movements. One of these painters is Claude Monet, a famous French artist, many of his paintings are masterpieces. Indeed, the museum owns one of the greatest impressionist painting: Claude Monet's Nymphéas series.
When we arrived in this must-see artistic place, we fell face to face with Monet's famous work. This painting spreads over the 4 walls of the gallery, we were surprised and impressed by the size and breadth of this painting. In the middle of the room, we were able to sit down and take the time to observe. We were amazed by the soft, springtime colour palette. This watercolor of shades immediately immersed us in a verdant flower garden.
