THE MARMOTTAN-MONET MUSEUM
Throughout the first half of the 20th century, the Marmottan Museum was a center of First Empire art. We go there to admire the magnificent collection of Paul Marmottan, and to relive the nostalgia of the great Napoleonic era, its imperial splendor, its past glories. But little by little, the Marmottan Museum is becoming a showcase for another style of art, less classic, more avant-garde: impressionism. In 1993, the museum changed its name: it became the Musée Marmottan-Monet.
