Six great intellectuals recently described the museum chosen and arranged by Claude Monet to showcase his “testamentary” masterpieces the "Nympheas", as “Unique in its genre”.

Next to the Nymphéas, “the haven of peaceful meditation”, a gift to modern man with his “overworked nerves”, the Orangerie offers a fabulous concentration of masterpieces from the Jean Walter and Paul Guillaume Collection, a highly original insight into modern art featuring Cézanne, Renoir, Picasso,Rousseau, Matisse, Derain, Modigliani, Soutine, Utrillo and Laurencin.
