    Description

    Monnaie de Paris pays tribute to the major masterpieces of French museums or having been painted in France.


    The obverse of the coin includes the entire representation of The Wave. It is in the close-up compared to the volcano which seems very little over the horizon. Fishermen run the risk to fall in the rough sea. This art work shows the Human fragility in front of the destructive power of nature. The background of the coin represents the nave of the Grand Palais. The stamp « Chefs d’œuvre des Musées » has been added on the top, matching perfectly the dome of Grand Palais. The title of the art work and the name of the artist are also depicted. The 2020 yeardate appears on the top right. The reverse is common to the series, it shows a mix of some French museums views.

    The Collection

    Launched in 2017, this series pays tribute in the biggest masterpieces of our museums and commemorates the trends and influences of our History - Renaissance, Baroque, Impressionism...

    The Museums' Masterpieces series, or when art meets art. Every year it is a great pleasure to pay tribute to such extraordinary artworks, but it is also a challenge for engraving! That of sublimating these artworks as best we can and using our ancestral methods to translate the artistic power and subliminal effects of these immense original artists.
