Overview
More
Formerly a private mansion and studio built in the 19th century, the Museum is dedicated to the work of Jean-Jacques Henner considered at the beginning of the 20th century to be one of the most important painters of his time. Its display follows the chronological itinerary of this artist from his native Alsace to Paris, where he settled, and Italy after receiving the Prix de Rome. The numerous works from the artist's studio reveal the working methods of an "official" painter of the Impressionist period.

Museum did a good job of putting the work of Henner, a very important artist in his time but overlooked today, in some historical context. Even if you don't share his fondness of women with long red hair you will probably find the house interesting....More

We enjoyed visiting this museum that held a collection of Impressionist paintings by Jean Jacques Henner. We had not been familiar with the artist but liked getting to know his work and visiting his studio.
