Jacquemart-André Museum

Local name: Musée Jacquemart-André

The Jacquemart-Andre Museum is located in the house of the Parisian banker Edouard Andre, on the banks of the Seine. It is an art museum where you can admire the original, preserved interiors from the second half of the nineteenth century, as well as a private art collection, which the owner collected all his life.

Andre's house was built in 1875. The owner and his wife decorated the interior according to the eclectic fashion of the time. At that time, they also traveled a lot around Europe, mainly to Italy, from where they imported paintings and sculptures originating mainly from the turn of the 15th and 16th centuries. The banker's wife, Nelie Jacquemart, continued traveling, including in exotic regions of the world, also after Andre's death.

In 1913, their collections became the property of the state and a museum was established on their basis. In the Representative and Private Apartments you can admire a collection of sculptures and paintings from the 18th and 19th centuries. Italian collections were collected in a separate gallery. The Winter Garden designed by Charles Garnier was also made available to visitors.
