Impressionism was born in Paris. This late 19th century art movement developed amongst a group of artists, including Claude Monet and Pierre-August Renoir, who were based in the capital. So it is entirely appropriate that Paris should host two fascinating exhibitions relating to the history and study of Impressionism with the Luxembourg Museum and the Musée Marmottan Monet.
