The museum Henner will be closed from September 17th 2013
until November 2015 due to extensive construction works
17 September 2013 - 15 November 2015
Formerly a private mansion and studio built in the 19th century, the Museum is dedicated to the work of Jean-Jacques Henner (1829-1905) 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.
