Discover Monet in Giverny

While you’re in Paris, stop by the Musée de l’Orangerie, where a selection of his water lily pantings are on display.
New Mexico through Georgia O’Keeffe’s eyes
This modern American artist made her debut in the art world in New York one hundred years ago. She did a huge part of her work in New Mexico and the landscapes and her life there inspired many of her greatest works of art, like Lawrence Tree and Summer Days. Don’t miss a trip to the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe and Ghost Ranch, where O’Keeffe lived and worked.
