Mention the word Impressionists and I’ll run on water to view an original. If you share that passion, a visit to Musée de l’Orangerie is imperative.
The Impressonist and Post-Impressionist art gallery is located in Jardin des Tuileries in Paris’s 1st arrondissement, between the Louvre and Place de la Concorde. It was built in 1852 to shelter the garden’s orange trees and also to exhibit agriculture, animals, plants and other rare art of the day.
Seventy years later, the story picks up quite nicely.
