The musée national Eugène-Delacroix
Housed in Eugène Delacroix’s former apartment, the Musée National Eugène-Delacroix is dedicated to the painter’s memory. It was created on the initiative of some of the greatest artists of the 1920s – such as Maurice Denis, Paul Signac, Édouard Vuillard and Ker-Xavier Roussel – and is a testament to their admiration for Delacroix and his work.
The museum and its collections
When the Musée National Eugène-Delacroix was affiliated with the Louvre in 2004, the artist’s personal museum became linked to the world’s largest collection of his paintings and drawings. The Musée Delacroix is now home to over a thousand works including paintings, drawings, prints and manuscripts by the artist himself, as well as objects that belonged to him and works by artists he admired.
No art lover’s trip to Paris is complete without a visit to Delacroix’s charming studio and the little garden he loved so much, at the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés.
