Housed in a 19th century mansion, the museum is dedicated to the work of the painter Jean-Jacques Henner (1829-1905). Its collections tell the story of Henner’s life, from the early days in his native Alsace to his stay at the Villa Medici after his Prix de Rome and finally to Paris where he was a successful painter and one of the most important of his time. The many works from Henner’s studio provide insight into how a successful painter would work during the Impressionist period.
