Musee Marmottan Monet - Monet Museum, Paris: 12 reviews and 20 photos
While away 2 lovely hours at the Marmottan, a museum in the 16th arrondissement of Paris that holds one of the best collections of Monets in the world.
Perhaps you'll get a chance to discuss the artwork with the docent: Monet, Manet, Berthe Morisot, Pisarro, Caillebotte. The knowledgable docent will tell you about the many periods of Monet and his influences on different styles of painting due to his changing styles throughout his life.
Notice that earlier works of Monet are more pastel and very much typical of the Impressionist style, while the later works border on the Expressionist with his many bold, garish colors that look Jackson Pollackesque when viewed up close & then "blend" into a recognizable scene when viewed much further away. You'll discover first-hand how Monet losing his eyesight later on in life affected his choice of colors rendering them almost as unrecognizable scenes.
