Our Insiders' Article


Who: Eugène Delacroix (1798 - 1863) is a French painter considered as many as one of the leading figures of Romanticism. His most famous painting “Liberty leading the People”, a symbol of the French Revolution, is exposed at the Louvre. He also painted inside Saint-Sulpice church.

What can you see: His house and workshop are located on one of the most charming squares in Paris, the Rue de Furstenberg. This is where he spent the last years of his life and where he passed away. Not only are the objects and paintings exposed interesting, but the small interior garden is truly a place of tranquility and peace.

Basic Info: 6 Rue de Furstenberg, 75006 / 9:30am to 5pm every day except closed on Tuesday / entrance fee 6€ 

Gustave Moreau

Who: Gustave Moreau (1826-1898) is one of the most famous French Symbolist painters, who mostly painted mythological and biblical figures. “Orphée”, exposed at the Musée d’Orsay, is one of his masterpieces.

What can you see: Gustave Moreau wanted his house to be a museum and therefore kept many of his paintings for himself. The small rooms of his living space, located on the ground and 1st floor, are literally filled with objects and paintings while the huge workshop on the 2 upper floors houses the much larger paintings. The architectural highlight is the spiral staircase in the workshop.

Basic Info: 14 Rue de la Rochefoucauld, 75009  / 10am - 12:45pm and 2pm to 5 :15pm every day except closed on Tuesday / entrance fee 6€

Ari Scheffer

Who: Although the museum doesn’t bear his name, the Musée de la Vie Romantique was the home ofAri Scheffer (1795-1858), a Dutch-French Romantic painter with a twist (his style is referred to as “frigidly classical”.) He painted mainly literary subjects such as Dante, Goethe or Byron.

What can you see: This museum is probably one of the most charming in Paris: a small 2 story house, a separate and furnished workshop and a picturesque inner courtyard and garden. Scheffer’s works are exposed in the house, as well as objects from the Romanticism period while the workshop generally houses temporary exhibitions.

Basic Info: 16 Rue Chaptal, 75009 / 10am to 6pm every day except closed on Monday / entrance is free for the permanent collections.


Who: Auguste Rodin(1840-1917) was a French sculptor, who had the incredible talent to transform his sculptures into virtually living flesh and blood. “The Gates of Hell” and “The Thinker” are two of his most notorious works, both exposed at the Musée Rodin.

What can you see: The Musée Rodin, located just next to the Invalides, is in two main parts. The Hôtel Biron, which used to be his house and workshop and is now the museum, and the gardens. Some of his most famous works are exposed in the gardens.  

Basic Info: 79 Rue de Varenne, 75007 / 10am to 5pm every day except closed on Monday / entrance fee 9€ for the museum+ garden or 2€ only for the garden.


Who: Claude Monet (1840-1926) is probably the most famous impressionist painter in the world. It is his painting “Impression soleil levant” that gave the name to the artistic movement. His most famous paintings are exposed at the Musée d’Orsay and the Musée Marmottant-Monet.

What can you see: Located 75km (45 miles) away from Paris, the house of Monet and its gardens are a great way to discover the environment the painter bathed in and where he got his inspiration. Giverny, the town, is also very charming and worth the visit.

Basic Info: 84 Rue Claude Monet, 27620 Giverny / 9:30am to 6 pm every day / entrance fee 10.30 €


Who: Antoine Bourdelle (1861-1929) was a prolific and influential sculptor who worked for Auguste Rodin before becoming himself a teacher for students such as Matisse, Maillol or Giacometti. He is quite famous for his huge statues and war memorials.

What can you see: The giant statues exposed there are the highlights of the Musée Bourdelle, which used to be his workshop. The brick architecture, quite uncommon in Paris, makes this museum also quite unique.

Basic Info: 16-18 Rue Antoine Bourdelle, 75015 / 10am to 6pm every day except closed on Monday / Entrance is Free for the permanent collection.


Who: Ossip Zadkine(1890-1967), a French sculptor of Russian origin, is considered as one of the great masters of cubist sculpture. He has created some 400 sculptures and thousands of drawings, engravings, aquarelles and sketches.

What can you see: The Musée Zadkine is quite small, yet very charming. Located at the end of a cobblestone alley, Zadkine’s workshop now houses a few stone or wood sculptures in a very modern setting. The bronze statues are displayed in the small garden of the museum.

Basic Info: 100bis Rue d'Assas, 75006 / 10am to 6pm every day except closed on Monday / Entrance is free for the permanent collection


What: Although this is not an artist’s workshop in particular, many of the most famous French or international artists have studied at the « Ecole des Beaux Arts », the distinguished National School of Fine Arts. The 2 visible parts of the building are striking by their beauty: the Chapelle des Petits-Augustins is an ancient chapel turned into a storeroom of beautiful sculptures and paintings while the Palais des Etudes will surely amaze with its beautiful glass covered courtyard.

Basic Info: visits can only be done through reservations by clicking here / Entrance Fee: 13.50€

Ecole Boulle

What: L’Ecole Boulle is one of the most famous international schools of design, fine arts and crafts and applied arts. Named after the 17th century artist André Charles Boulle generally considered to be the preeminent artist in the field of marquetry, l’Ecole Boulle is a great reference when it comes to interior design and architecture.

Basic Info: l’Ecole Boulle can only be visited during the open house, which usually take place at the end of January (30-31 January 2015). 21 Rue Pierre Bourdan, 75012 / 9am to 5 pm / Entrance is free.

Modern Workshops

There are countess artists living and working in Paris today and therefore quite a lot of specially designed workshops dedicated to artistic creativity. While these workshops cannot be visited on a regular basis, some do tend to open their doors to the public on special occasions like the Ateliers d’artistes de Belleville,(the biggest co-workshop in Paris) on the last weekend of May or Les Frigos, the former refrigerated warehouse turned official workshops at the end of May.All year round, you will be able to see artists working (and pleasing the tourists) on the crowded Place du Tertre at the top of the Montmartre Hill.
