"Landmark houses" label

In 2019, Jean-Jacques Henner's museum receives the "Landmark houses" label for Guillaume Dubufe (1853-1909). He settled in 1878 in this studio-house wich will be a place of life, creation and sociablity for his friends and family. 

The “Landmark” classification has been granted to selected places of memory. These significant places are intrinsically linked to contributing to our understanding of French Cultural History. They act as a witness to the wealth of heritage diversity, throughout the ages, in different parts of the Greater Paris Region. They make up a network of heritage centres each with its own particularity

This classification “Landmark Houses” was created in 2011 by the French Ministry for Cultural Affairs. The aim was to bring to the attention of the public those venues where illustrious personalities had a connection, be it through their architectural or artistic merits or through the artefacts and works displayed in the unique atmosphere to be found in these houses, stimulating the imagination, inciting curiosity.
