Paris cache of Monets

Los Angeles Times - - TRAVEL -

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.
