Illumination - The Marmottan-Monet Museum - Paris, France

There was a special exhibit at the Marmottan-Monet while we were on our 55th anniversary trip to Paris. The museum has the largest collection of the works of Claude Monet including his 1872 "Impression, Sunrise" that gave the name to Impressionism. They also have a stunning collection of Berthe Morisot and another of illuminated medieval manuscripts. Add the beautiful Ranelagh Park next to the museum, and it is a marvelous day in Paris.
