Description

On Rue Daubigny in Auvers-sur-Oise, the 1861 façade of this unique house and artists’ studio hides an important slice of history. It was here that the village’s first painter Charles-François Daubigny lived and worked, surrounded by artist friends.

Grandeur and intimacy

Built by the architect Oudinot, a friend of Daubigny’s, the house, labelled by the French government a “Maison des Illustres”, or “House of the Illustrious,” in 2014, boasts an impressively proportioned painting studio, preserved in its original state. Under its 7.5 meter-high roof, you can admire remarkable frescos realised by Daubigny and his friends, following a design conceived by Corot.

Inside the house, you will be welcomed by a reproduction of Daumier’s “*Don Quixote and the Dead Mule”, replacing the original, today held at the Musée d’Orsay. Continue into the dining room to discover original panels painted by Daubigny and his two children, Karl and Cécile.

Cécile’s charming bedroom with its frescos evoking fairy tales and children’s games, was created by the painter in 1863 for his daughter’s 20th birthday.

In 1890, years after Daubigny’s death, the garden was immortalised by Van Gogh, a great admirer of the artist, in his painting “Daubigny’s Garden”.
