FAST FACTS

Musee Marmottan Monet houses the largest Monet collection in the world!  One of the major donors was the artist’s son, Michel Monet, who bequeathed his father’s paintings, drawings, and notebooks in 1966.

The museum opened in 1934; once the residence of Paul Marmottan, it provides an elegant backdrop to both Impressionist works of art and other artistic periods such as the First Empire.

Highlights of a museum tour include Monet’s Impression: Sunrise (the painting said to be origin of the term Impressionism) and his fabulous WATER LILIES.  More than 80 works by Berthe Morisot are also part of the museum’s holdings plus other Impressionist paintings by Pissarro, Sisley, among others.
