Musée de l’Orangerie was originally a green-house of sorts, used to store orange trees in the winter (hence the name). It slowly became a space for art exhibitions and as an annex for nearby art museums. In the early 1920s, Claude Monet began looking for a space to display new works he intended to donate to the French government in celebration of peace following World War I. The Orangerie was eventually suggested, leading to the museum’s most notable works: a permanent installment of eight of Monet’s Waterlillies paintings. Monet painted rounded panels—over 320 feet worth—especially for the space. They are installed along the walls of two egg-shaped rooms, immersing the viewer in the painter’s world. The museum then built their collection around this project, resulting in its highly curated selection of European works from the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
