The Orangerie of Tuileries

Metro : Concorde
Situated at the west end of the Tuileries gardens is the Orangerie, at present undergoing major reorganization and due to reopen at the end of 2001. It houses several of Monet's Water Lilies, as well as a private art collection, weighted heavily in favour of the Impressionists and including renoir, Soutine and Sisley. The current work involves restructuring the building and replacing many of the existing exterior walls with glass, in line with the building's original function as Orangerie. After all the upheaval, much of the Orangerie's collection will be rearranged, and with any luck, extra room will be created for paintings from the museum's reserves.

Jeu de Paume

Opposite the Orangerie, the Jeu de Paume was formerly home to the state's Impressionist collection before its relocation to the Musée d'Orsay. It is now used for temporary shows of contemporary art, usually major retrospectives of established artists, but also, every autumn, more cuttin-edge stuff by artists invited for the Festival d'Automne. Festival d'Automne : Theatre and music festival including companies from Easter Europe, America and Japan. Multilingual productions. Lots of avant-garde and multimedia stuff, most of it very exciting.
