Paris, the capital city of France is recognized as the world’s fashion capital. Also known as the city of lights and love, it has a large number of great destinations that will create an everlasting impression in your mind. One of such great places is the Musée de l’Orangerie.
If you are a fan of Monet’s work of art, the Water Lilies and the American abstract painting from the 19th centuries, Musée de l’Orangerie Paris remains the perfect place to enjoy discovering or rediscovering all of this. From April 13 through August 20, 2018, it puts on view an exhibition that focuses on the impact of Monet’s work on American painters and draws attention to how it is viewed by the American people.
This exhibition is presented in two sections:
- A first section devoted to the fabulous masterpieces created by American artists who were inspired by Monet. It includes paintings from artists like Philip Guston, Ellsworth Kelly, Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollock, Joan Mitchell, Clyfford Still, Sam Francis, Barnett Newman, Morris Louis and Helen Frankenthaler among many others; and
- A second section that gives visitors a chance to discover some of Monet’s later works.
There is still time to visit this remarkable exhibition. So, do not hesitate to visit it if you are staying at our hotel in Paris.
