Musée de l’Orangerie

Musée de l’Orangerie

Located in the Tuileries Garden, since 1984 the museum has been home to the Jean Walter and Paul Guillaume collection, which has been sold to the state on very generous terms. This collection includes 144 paintings from the late nineteenth and the first half of the twentieth century (Cezanne, Renoir, Matisse, Picasso, Derain, Soutine, Modigliani, Utrillo, Douanier Rousseau ...). It joined the eight immense compositions of Water Lilies that Monet offered to France in 1922 and which have been installed since 1927 in two large oval rooms specially fitted out in the building, on the indications of the painter to receive them.

Robert Ryman. The act of looking

6 March 2024 1 July 2024
The Musée de l'Orangerie is devoting an exhibition to the American artist Robert Ryman (1930-2019). Named « Le regard en acte » (The act of looking), this first large-scale presentation of the painter's work on in a French public institution since 1981 confirms the artist's historical importance five years after his death. Too often equated with the American minimalist movement (with which it usually dialogues on museum walls), today, Ryman's unique approach demands to be viewed for itself and by itself.
