Musée Gustave Moreau - Atelier 2e étage L'escalier

Gustave Moreau Museum

By bequeathing his studio house to the French government during his lifetime, Gustave Moreau (1826 - 1898) wanted to ensure that it would remain as it was. Today, it is a precious witness of the 19th century lifestyle.

Description

Time does not seem to have taken hold of the Gustave Moreau Museum, which has retained all its former charm. The presentation of works on easels testifies to what was once a workshop before becoming a museum, in a spectacular museography that has remained unchanged since the beginning.

Far from the major museums, enter the artist’s exclusive domain, designed and desired by him, in the family mansion. The place consists of a ground floor, an apartment on the 1st floor, and large glass workshops built at the request of the owner on the 2nd and 3rd floors. They are connected by a magnificent wrought iron staircase Some 1200 paintings, watercolours and cardboard and 4000 drawings by the painter’s hand are on display today. 9000 drawings and layers are also kept in storage..

A real intimate immersion into the universe of the undisputed master of symbolism!

TOP TIP: the admission ticket to the Gustave Moreau Museum is included in the Paris Region Pass Experience.
