The Grand Palais launches its Monet spinner

The Grand Palais yesterday (September 22nd) launched the biggest show of this (and several other) autumn seasons with a vast retrospective of the work of the impressionist Claude Monet.

Over half a million people are expected to visit the exhibition over the next four months, and long queues can be expected at all times. However, if you are far from Paris or simply want to look at what will be presented during the show, be sure to visit the excellent website that has been created for the occasion.

The website offers both a virtual visit of the show with full descriptions of each painting and more fun, interactive elements to help you to understand Monet's world.

So often I read about exhibits that are short-lived and miss them entirely. I will be there in December and have put this on my list. The Grand Palais is a wonderful setting although I really love Petit Palais which has a nice museum book shop.

Merci, Adam!

Yes, the Petit Palais is great, and it also has a Monet or two in its permenant collection that we can always see for free! The cafe is in a fantastic setting too.
