Paris cache of Monets
I enjoyed Donna Kato’s article “As Glamorous as Louvre, but Without the Crowds” [June 7].
I’d like to add onemore Paris museum to her list. The Musée Marmottan Monet is named after Paul Marmottan, wh odonated his beautiful home to house his collections. In1966, when Monet’s son Michel died in an automobile accident, the museum received more than 130works by the artist, including “Impression, Sunrise,” fromwhich the Impressionist movement is said to have gotten its name.
Besides the well-known water lilies and paintings of the artist’s house in Giverny, France, you’ll also see Renoir’s portrait of Monet.
