About the Museum
The Musée Jacquemart-André, was built by Edouard André and his wife Nélie Jacquemart, both avid art collectors, in the new Paris being laid out by Baron Haussmann towards the end of the 19th century. This private mansion offers visitors a unique opportunity to explore a wealthy 19th century home composed of ceremonial rooms, monumental stairways, a winter garden and private apartments.
The collection of the museum brings together some of the most remarkable works of art that the couple had amassed in the course of their many journeys: works from the Italian Renaissance, French painting from the 18th century, 17th century Flemish painting and a rich array of furniture and tapestries.
