I visited L'Orangerie about 30 years ago and enjoyed it greatly. This time, it was a revelation! The Monet Water Lilies murals are obviously a highlight, but the real jewel in the exhibits is downstairs, in the Collection of Jean Walter and Paul Guillaume. This collection of paintings from the last 100+ years or so was nothing short of spectacular. Renoir, Picasso, Cezanne, Sisley, Matisse, Laurencin, Modigliani...the list goes on and on. L'Orangerie is arge enough to give you an amazingly wonderful view of this era of painting, yet small enough so you won't suffer "museum feet." For the next few months, Renoir's final painting is on loan and displayed. You won't regret spending an hour or so here...well worth it!
