Guided Tour Of The Musée Eugène-delacroix General Information
  • Type: Tours
  • Nearest Train: Saint-Germain-des-Prés
  • Venue Description:
    This museum was created in 1952 in a section of an apartment, which belonged to the painter who lived here from 1857 till his death. Delacroix had settled in the heart of the Saint-Germain-des-Prés district to be closer to the Saint Sulpice church, where he painted his famous frescoes. Although the Musée d'Orsay and the Louvre exhibit his most famous paintings, this museum nevertheless shows some interesting works. Besides the artist's personal mementos and his furniture, there are also some watercolors, lithographs, sketches, self portraits, and studies as well as the tools of his trade. Do not miss the self-portrait of the master as Hamlet and his Madeleine, depicting Mary Madgalene, whom Christ cured of the bad spirits who lived in her, in ecstasy. Temporary exhibitions are regularly held.
