I stumbled upon this hotel in one of the nicest parts of Paris, the beautiful and relatively quiet 17th arrondissement, essentially by chance. The building is a remarkable turn of the century mansion, with an original interior combining all sorts of influences, from neo-classical to Arabic. The museum is named after Henner, a French painter who was one of the most famous of his time, around the end of the 19th century / beginning of the 20th. His style is neo-classical and often patriotic - his native region, Alsace, was occupied by Germany at the time -, not necessarily the most original but a great representation of the reigning style of the era. The visit is not long, basically a great way to have a peak at what the French art world was looking like a century ago.
