The world’s largest-ever exhibition dedicated to the French impressionist master Claude Monet has opened in Paris.
The Grand Palais, just off the famous Champs Elysees, runs until January 24.
Hundreds of thousands of visitors are expected to attend. 80,000 tickets have already been sold.
The exhibition includes nearly two hundred works, a third of which come from the collection of the city’s Musee d’Orsay.
The rest have been loaned by galleries and private collectors in the US, Japan, Britain and Russia.
