Musée Marmottan Monet – The Supporting Acts

The obvious draw for most visitors to Musée Marmottan Monet is to see paintings by the master himself. But what was surprising to me was the wide range of paintings by other well-known artists.

I referred to Monet as the Star of the Show yesterday. Today I thought it would be fun to look at some of his Supporting Acts. I say that in jest, of course .. these pieces are by equally impressive talents with recognisable names. Here are the ones that jumped out at me.

La Fiancée au Visage Bleu|Marc Chagall
Claude Monet Lisant | Pierre-Auguste Renoir
Vue de Pont-Neuf | Jean Louis Prévost
Le Canal Du Loing Au Printemps | Alfred Sisley
Portrait de Mademoiselle Victorine de Bellio | Pierre-Auguste Renoir
Roses Trémières | Berthe Morisot
Portrait de Madame Ducros | Edgar Degas
Portrait d’Hortense de Beauharnais, Reine de Hollande | François Pascal Simon Gérard
Le Bois de le Côte de Grâce à Honfleur | Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot
Promenade de l’empereur Napoleon Ier et de Marie-Louise a Fontainebleau | Jean Joseph Xavier Bidauld
Chrysanthèmes Blancs et Jaunes, Jardin du Petit Gennevilliers | Gustave Caillebotte
Berthe Morisot Étendue | Édouard Manet

I hope that you’ve enjoyed these posts, which have given me an excuse to travel down memory lane. Anything to bury my head in the sand and avoid the news.

Bonne journée!


PS. Today marks 3 full months of daily posts. My initial goal was to complete 1 month. I might as well keep going!

  1. The man reading the paper with the pipe I loved along with the portrait of the young girl with the white/gold dress. Her expression is fantastic. My artist talent is restricted to Snoopy, and x’s and o’s.
