Owner description: Formerly a private mansion and studio built in the 19th century, the Museum is dedicated to the work of Jean-Jacques Henner considered at the beginning of the 20th century to be one of the most important painters of his time. Its display follows the chronological itinerary of this artist from his native Alsace to Paris, where he settled, and Italy after receiving the Prix de Rome. The numerous works from the artist's studio reveal the working methods of an "official" painter of the Impressionist period.

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.
