Palais Garnier

Extend your stroll through the nineteenth century and the ninth arrondissement of Paris with a visit to the Palais Garnier, the national theater and opera house of Paris, near the Gustave Moreau Museum.

The Palais Garnier, an opera house inaugurated in 1875 and built by architect Charles Garnier (1825-1898), an exact contemporary of painter Gustave Moreau (1826-1898), is a world-famous architectural masterpiece.
A great lover of music, Gustave Moreau was a regular visitor to the Palais Garnier, where he was often invited by his friends. He had a particular taste for Mozart, and went to applaud the diva Mademoiselle Krauss in Don Juan. A Charles Garnier visiting card in the Gustave Moreau archives assures us that the two men met. The painter was also very close to a number of artists who made decisive contributions to the Opéra's painted decor, such as Paul Baudry (ceiling of the Grand Foyer), Jules-Eugène Lenepveu (ceiling of the auditorium, now covered by Chagall's work) and Jules Elie Delaunay (ceiling of the salon Est in the Grand Foyer). He also counted among his friends the sculptors Henri Chapu, creator of La Cantate (main façade of the Opéra) or Pierre-Jules Cavelier, author of the statue of Glück representing German music (grand vestibule of the Opéra)

In 1883, Gustave Moreau himself was commissioned by Auguste-Emmanuel Vaucorbeil, director of the opera from 1879 to 1884, to create costumes for Sapho, an opera by his friend Charles Gounod. Moreau's project was ultimately unsuccessful, but his watercolors were sold for the benefit of the widow of Vaucorbeil, who died in 1884.

A visit to the Palais Garnier will allow you to discover the splendors of eclectic architecture and social life at the end of the nineteenth century: grand staircase, foyers, salon du Glacier and auditorium with superb painted and sculpted decor. In addition, the library-museum's rich collections bear witness to three centuries of Opera history. Throughout the year, the museum's halls present themed temporary exhibitions and a permanent gallery featuring paintings, drawings, photographs and small-scale volume models of scenery.

Musée de la Vie Romantique

The quiet rue Chaptal is home to the Musée de la Vie Romantique, dedicated to the arts under the Restoration and the July Monarchy, with a particular focus on George Sand and Ary Scheffer. For almost thirty years, the painter lived in the house, worked there and entertained the artistic elite of his time in his studio-salon: Chopin, Liszt, Lamartine, Delacroix, Thiers and Dickens. The collection includes paintings, objets d'art and furniture that bear witness to this brilliant period.
The Musée de la Vie Romantique is located in the 9th arrondissement, just a few minutes' walk from the Musée Gustave Moreau

Jean-Jacques Henner National Museum

Installed in the former mansion of painter Guillaume Dubufe (1853-1909), the museum is dedicated to the work of Jean-Jacques Henner (1829-1905).
In this house-workshop, you can discover the new ground-floor spaces, a neo-Renaissance salon and a winter garden, evoking what artistic life was like in the Plaine Monceau during the Third Republic. Upstairs, the collections retrace Jean-Jacques Henner's itinerary, from his native Alsace to Paris, via the Villa Medici, where he stayed after winning the Prix de Rome. Thanks to numerous studio works, the tour provides an insight into how an "official" painter worked in the Impressionist era.
