  • This particular hotel of the late nineteenth century belonged to the painter Guillaume Dubufe. He was bought by J.J. Henner's family and then given to the State to expose the works of last. We visit this place on 3 floors. On the ground floor, the first room has a very nice ceiling with box; It is extended by a music lounge with a glass roof. It is essentially a portraitist with a taste for the Roux, a source of light. Entry price: €6

  • This museum housed in a magnificent Mansion is located 2 steps from the Metro Ternes (row 3) in the heart of Paris.Il brings together the works of the painter J.J. HENNER devoted in particular as an obsession to sumptuous redheads women. This gave the idea of an exhibition on the theme of the freckles where the painting is covered, of course, but also the literature, the fashion (S. Rykiel), the photo, the cinema, the childish heroes, the African art, the Christ... It's exciting, funny, inclusive responding and superbly presented. I was fortunate to have a "wandering" commented free with my ticket, 45 minutes by a lecturer educated, simple friendly.. A must see!

  • Quiet and not too crowded museum. The venue is more interesting than the paintings themselves. But it is my personal opinion. This workshop-type house has French ceiling and old wooden staircases which create a home-like atmosphere. A peculiar spot in Paris.
  • Beautiful building, free for under 26, feels like being in the home of this not so famous yet very talented painter! If you are tired of mai stream museums in Paris try swinging by this one!
