Monet at the Musee Marmottan

File:Claude Monet - Water Lilies.JPG

As with speaking French, there is no way to describe the experience of seeing one of Claude Monet’s paintings. One of the privileges RT enjoyed in Paris was living within walking distance of the Musee Marmottan, located in a 19th-century townhouse in the 16th arrondissement. In those days (the 1970s), the Musee was a quiet, out-of-the-way institution where a visitor could examine at leisure Monet’s amazing impressionist technique. The great beauty of Monet’s work, the gentle silence of the old building…what an experience!  RT
