Chaïm Soutine Exhibition at Musée de l’Orangerie

A blustery fall day seemed like the perfect occasion to visit the Musée de l’Orangerie and enjoy Claude Monet’s waterlillies. The permanent collection of works by Modigliano, Picasso, Dérain, Cézanne, Soutine, and others is fabulous.

The current temporary exhibition at the Orangerie is a nice bonus: Chaïm Soutine, l’ordre du chaos.

The exhibition combines the Soutine paintings from the Orangerie’s permanent collection with works borrowed from diverse collections, including museums in Moscow, New York City, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, and Baltimore. The exhibition is organized around different genres in Soutine’s work: portraits, landscapes, and still lifes.
