Description

Considered as a precursor of Surrealism, Henry Fuseli (1741–1825) developed an aesthetic of the fantastic and dreams. His works illustrate his taste for the imaginary, for mythological, biblical, and Shakespearean subjects, inspired by infinity, dreams and nightmares. This Swiss-born British painter also illustrated works the works of Dante and the medieval epic poem The Song of the Nibelungs. A rich and striking work, always seeking the sublime.

Musée Jacquemart-André

The Musée Jacquemart-André, owned by the Institut de France, presents collections of art that are worthy of great museums in a magnificent Second Empire mansion. Often compared to the Frick Collection in New York, it has maintained its mansion atmosphere, which makes it unique in Paris. This museum lets visitors discover 19th century living areas: ceremonial rooms, monumental stairways, winter garden, private apartments and more.

Edouard André, a 19th century collector, and his wife Nélie Jacquemart, a renowned portrait artist, travelled across Europe and the East to acquire rare works of art and furniture. The collections are some of the most remarkable in France: works from Flemish and German schools, detached frescoes, refined furniture and tapestries also find their place on the ground floor of the house. But Nélie Jacquemart devoted most of her attention to the Renaissance period in Florence and Venice. In fact, the first floor is devoted to Italian art during this period.
