Marmottan Monet Museum – A fabulous collection installed in a beautiful Parisian mansion

Located in the 16th arrondissement, the Museum is a former hunting lodge acquired in 1882 by Jules Marmottan, lawyer, politician and art collector. His son Paul, an art historian and collector, bequeathed the family collection and the pavilion, which was transformed into a private mansion, upon his death in 1934. The Marmottan Museum was born.

Over time, the museum received many exceptional donations, such as that of Dr. Georges de Bellio, a doctor and friend of many Impressionists, and Michel Monet, the painter’s son, who bequeathed more than 80 works of art in addition to the Giverny property. Marmottan became Marmottan-Monet.

Pissarro, Renoir, Gauguin, Sisley, Degas… So many prestigious names that you will find exposed, as well as a rich collection of Berthe Morisot, rare woman of the impressionist movement, more known for the avant-gardism of her art than for its mix.

Currently at the Musée Marmottan Monet : FACING THE SUN until January 23, 2023

The Musée Marmottan Monet is the best place in the world to see Claude Monet’s masterpieces up close. Visitors can admire more than 100 of the painter’s works, donated by friends and family over many years, including iconic works such as “Impression, Sunrise” and a unique set of “Water Lilies.”

 As you will have understood, it is not only the works of Monet that make the museum a must in Paris but also the beauty of the place
