Rendez-vous at the Musée Marmottan Monet in Paris
The musée Marmottan Monet was originally a hunting lodge belonging to Paul Marmottan, an art lover and noted collector. On his death in 1932, the collections and house were bequeathed to the Académie des Beaux-Arts.
The museum’s collection is composed of First Empire art objects and paintings, an important ensemble of illuminated manuscripts, and several impressionist paintings of Berthe Morisot, Edouard Manet, Edgar Degas and Auguste Renoir.
Mainly the museum hosts the world’s largest ensemble of works by Claude Monet.
