Jeu de Paume - Musée de l'Orangerie
Luigi Ghirri - Franz Marc and August Macke joint exhibition tour

Jeu de Paume, Paris

Jeu de Paume and the Musée de l’Orangerie are continuing their partnership in the form of combined exhibition visits, providing a novel way to discover these two emblematic institutions of the Tuileries Gardens and the connections between them.


Twins in the Tuileries:
common origins, different destinies

The triangular terraces created by Le Nôtre form the right-angled bases on which stand the Orangerie and the Jeu de Paume. In 1909, the Jeu de Paume became an exhibition gallery and then, in 1922, it was made an annex of the Musée du Luxembourg for the exhibition of foreign contemporary art. Also in 1922, the formalisation of Claude Monet’s gift to the French state of his monumental Water Lily paintings saw the beginning of work at the Orangerie on a permanent structure to display this ensemble.
Today the Musée de l’Orangerie is an outstanding venue for the art of the early 20th century, while the Jeu de Paume has become a major centre for lens-based art of the 20th and 21st centuries. The two institutions continue to dialogue through their programming and in the exchanges between painting and photography that are one of the drivers of developments in modern art.
