Paris, Part 2: Les Tuileries and L'Orangerie - Monet's Waterlilies
We walked through Les Tuileries park, with the gold-tipped obelisk at the Place de la Concorde in front of us, towards L'Orangerie, a museum new to us.
L'Orangerie has two rooms designed specifically to showcase 8 huge Monet waterlily paintings. The rooms are oval and lit by huge skylights, so you can walk round and round in natural light, admiring the 4 long, dreamy works in each room.
And also Renoir's "Young Girls at the Piano"
