Discover the last home and studio of Romantic artist Eugène Delacroix, who is widely regarded as the leader of the French Romantic school.
The museum is situated in the final home and studio of Eugène Delacroix, who is widely regarded as the leader of the French Romantic school. He moved here in December 1857 to be closer to Saint-Sulpice church, where he was decorating a chapel and remained at Rue de Furstenburg until his death in 1863.
Today, the apartment and studio, which Delacroix had built shortly after his arrival, contain works from nearly every stage in the artist's career, including the renowned and unusual Magdalene in the Desert.
As well as the paintings, you will find personal items belonging to the artist - drawings, easels, palettes, painting tables, photographs of Delacroix, some of his personal letters, a library containing over 1,000 works and souvenirs such as jewellery and ceramics from his trip to Morocco in 1832. Guests are also free to explore and enjoy Delacroix's much-loved private garden.
