Impression Sunrise
Musee Marmottan

There are hundreds of works by Claude Monet for public viewing all over the world.  As he had a long life (1840-1926) as well as a long painting career (1858- 1924), he was able to leave us with a treasure of his works to enjoy.

Monet lived most of his professional life in and around Paris, therefore, most of the major museums possess his works. The Musée Marmottan houses mostly works by Monet, including his Impression Sunrise,  and the Musée l’Orangerie has an incredible display of his Water Lilly panels which was recently renovated and reopened in 2006.

Of course, if you love Monet’s works, no visit to France is complete without a side trip to Giverny to see Monet’s home and gardens, which have been kept immaculate over the years and will place you right at his easel.

I compiled this list of works (extensive, though not exhaustive) by Monet for a previous trip to Paris and wanted to share it with you for your next visit ! (Check the websites of the museums to make sure they are on exhibit and not out on loan !)
