If you want to immerse yourself in the work of one artist, you have many opportunities to do so in Paris.

Of course, you will also find works by these artists in the larger museums of Paris, such as the Louvre and the Musée d'Orsay. But if you really want to focus on an artist, you have that option.

Claude Monet

Lovers of Monet have several opportunities to explore the works of this famous Impressionist. The Marmottan Monet, near the Bois de Boulogne, is home to the largest collection of Monet's works in the world. The Orangerie, in the Jardin des Tuileries, houses his large Water Lily paintings. And if you want to see the inspiration for these paintings and Monet's home, head to Giverny, a nice excursion from Paris. More...
