In the Tuileries garden this discrete building, facing the Concorde, offers the visitor a poetic and artistic presentation of two prestigious collections: Water Lilies (Les Nymphéas) the ultimate expression of Claude Monet’s artistic ideas, an incredible project by a painter who wanted to explore all the variations of light in his garden at Giverny.
The paintings are housed in two elliptical rooms, and encourage the visitor to gaze in endless contemplation. The museum, renovated in 2006, is a good complement to a visit at the Orsay Museum to discover more French artists from the XIXth century and major movements as Impressionism.
The museum also hosts the Walter-Guillaume Collection, the intellectual project of art dealer Paul Guillaume and his wife Domenica, is a unique collection illustrating the creative work of the first decades of the 20th century.
A friend of Guillaume Apollinaire and Max Jacob, he provided support to Picasso, Soutine, Derain and Marie Laurencin as well as taking an interest in their predecessors, particularly Renoir and Cézanne. Guillaume's premature death in 1934 prevented his dream – of transforming his private collection into a museum of modern art – from being realised. His wife completed and modified the collection, reorganising it around works representing modern Classicism and Impressionism, before ceding it to the State in 1960.
