Musée de l'orangerie Miniatures

An art gallery of impressionist and post-impressionist paintings located on the Place de la Concorde on the bank of the Seine in the old orangery of the Tuileries Palace on the Place de la Concorde near the Concorde metro station.

On the Bank of the Seine, Bennecourt, 1868. An early example of plein-air impressionism, in which a gestural and suggestive use of oil paint was presented as a finished work of art.

Cheryl Miller has reproduced Monet's Garden, Dining Room and Kitchen, a wonderful site!
