Europe is a continent of museums, France a nation full of Artwork, and Paris itself is always being painted in her many poses. There are numerous museums and galleries where you can tease out the vagaries between a Manet and Monet. Paris is also home to a number of the greatest museums in all of Europe. The Louvre is more than simply the most visited art museum in the world; it is a landmark as well as a source of national pride and identity for the French.
Smaller museums dedicated to just one artist. The three most beautiful and evocative museums in all of Paris happen to be dedicated to single artists: Musées Moreau, Rodin, and Zadkine. Not all museums are free for everybody, but hopefully there will be days and times that they are free for you (for example, seniors and students).
