Monet at Chateau Marmottan

So many paintings and sketches. Every time we finished a room, we thought we had finished only to discover another room full of treasures. The finale was so like the finish to a breathtaking fireworks show...the huge wall filling panels in a somewhat circular room...color filling each one...the strokes getting wilder and larger as the master lost his sight until there were just true "impressions" of images vaguely defined by swathes of color. Magnificent!!
