In the heart of the royal town of Saint-Germain-en-Laye, west of Paris, discover the Espace Paul et André Véra in homage to the brothers of the same name who lived in Saint-Germain in the 20th century.
Paul (1882-1957), decorative painter and André Vera (1881-1971), garden theorist, contributed to the influence of the decorative arts movement, halfway between the cubist avant-garde and the tradition of French classicism.

André Vera's donation to the city in 1968 for the creation of a museum today allows us to admire Paul's artistic jewels (papermaking, ceramics, illustrations, watercolours…) as well as the garden projects of the two brothers during the inter-war period.

The interior of the dining room and office of La Thébaïde, their property in Saint-Germain-en-Laye, has been reconstructed identically. As for the workshop fund, it is presented annually on a rotating basis.

The space regularly hosts temporary exhibitions.
