Musée Eugène Delacroix
(NEWS: The Musée national Eugène-Delacroix is currently closed for works. It will reopen on 20 March 2024 with a new exhibition entitled "Ingres et Delacroix, objets d'artistes", co-organised with the Musée Ingres Bourdelle in Montauban).
Delacroix moved to 6 rue de Fürstenberg on 28 December 1857, abandoning the studio on rue Notre-Dame-de-Lorette, which he had rented since 1844 and which was too far from the Saint-Sulpice church, where he was to complete the mural painting of a chapel, the Saints-Anges church. The new home has a small garden in which he has his workshop built. The day after moving in, he wrote in his diary: "My home is definitely charming. …] The view from my small garden and the laughing aspect of my studio always give me a feeling of pleasure.
The Eugène Delacroix Museum is both a place of memory and a tribute to the artist. It was indeed created on the initiative of the greatest artists of the 1920s, Maurice Denis, Henri Matisse, Paul Signac in particular. It is attached to the musée du Louvre.
An intimate setting, a selection of paintings such as Romeo and Juliet at the Capulet's tomb, pastels, preparatory sketches but also letters and photographs of his loved ones, personal objects, invite you to immerse yourself in the universe of one of the greatest French painters of the 19th century.
The best collections in Paris await you in the museums and cultural sites in Paris Region.
