With an exclusive walk around Paris, a passionate guide with more than ten years’ experience in the art world will carry the guests back through time drawing on historical photographs, quotations and images to revealthe origin of a variety of works and take them behind the scenes.
Thus, guests who choose to follow in the steps of Claude Monet will be able to discover the rebellious and revolutionary character that allowed him to develop his quick brushstrokes, to build a floating studio on a boat and paint previously neglected subjects from everyday life. Painted in 1876, “Les Tuileries” is an example of this, in which the master captured a view that is remarkably similar to what Le Meurice’s guests can appreciate from their balconies. The walk will come to an end at the Orangerie Museum in the Tuileries gardens, immersed in the heart of “Les Nymphéas”, the paintings that marked the bold peak of Monet’s work.
To better understand the eccentric Pablo Picasso’s canvasses, the walkers will head for Montmartre, the artists’ and bohemians’ district where it all began for the young Spaniard. During the course of this walk the guide will explain the difficulties that the young painter was faced with on his arrival in Paris before becoming one ofthe 20th century’s bestknown artists. As the years went by, he managed to find his place and even organised his wedding breakfast in Le Meurice’s Pompadour Lounge for his marriage with Olga Khokhlova on 12 July 1918.
With this exclusive programme Le Meurice is offering its guests the opportunity to discover a unique and mysterious Paris. These experiences address everyone – curious people seeking a pleasant conversation and a stroll down the picturesque streets of Paris, lovers of Monet and Picasso wanting to draw a complete portrait of the artists and find the answers to their questions. The guide will take care to adapt the rhythm and content of the tour to suit everyone.
The experience includes a one-night stay in a superior room or suite, an American breakfast and a two-hour guided walk – starting from €985 for two people.
Booking on +33 (0)1 87 16 44 59 or by email at réservations.LMP@dorchestercollection.com.
The tours can be prolonged to one whole day or spread between two half days on request.
