Magnificent Impressionist works
2 rue Louis-Bailly, 16e, www.marmottan.fr A truly delightful museum that combines the treasures of a discerning private collection with a magnificent Impressionist section. Jules and Paul Marmottan’s collections of Italian primitives and Napoleonic objets d’art were augmented in the 1960s by a bequest of Claude Monet’s later works donated by his son. They include the 1872 Impression, Soleil Levant, a sunrise at Le Havre, which gave the Impressionist movement its name, and a glorious array of abstract canvases from the waterlily period at Giverny. Also works by Berthe Morisot, Renoir and Sisley.
