This museum was created in the residence of the symbolist painter, Gustave Moreau (1826-1898) in accordance with his last request. He set up his studio in this peaceful place, which now hosts a collection of thousands of his paintings and drawings. Some pieces help visitors understand the style and the state-of-mind of a painter who found inspiration in mythology, biblical and literary works. It also helps to determine the evolution of this artist's rather personal approach. Following the steps of the Pre-Raphaelites, Moreau created his own world of fantastic characters painted in shimmering colors. He later inspired the Surrealists who must have found in this eccentric house some ingredients to build their own world.
