Musée de l'Orangerie, built in 1852 to shelter the groves of the Republic, is renowned for its permanent installation of eight of Claude Monet’s Water Lilies murals in a pair of elegant oval galleries. The site was chosen by the artist himself and is a miraculous success, creating a unique haven of peaceful meditation. Also not without considerable merit is the balance of the collection, which is rich in the works of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist masters from the Jean Walter and Paul Guillaume Collection, including Paul Cézanne, Henri Matisse, Amedeo Modigliani, Pablo Picasso, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Henri Rousseau, Alfred Sisley, Chaim Soutine and Maurice Utrillo.
