Here below you will find the musea with the most impressionist paintings. In alphabetical order you will find the countries. Then the abbreviation used in the subscriptions of the paintings (in an alphabetical order), than the full name of the museum with a link to there website and sometimes a link to an overview of (impressionist) painters. For more museums see (=iR21) and see (=iR23).

2020/09/01 I start another selection below the former classification, numbering the musea. Thus when I use pictures and/or information from a website of a museum I can more easily refer to it. In this classification I will start with musea with the largests collections of impressionist works, than I will render other musea per country and at last I will render other musea with just a few impressionist works.
