Located in the romantic neighbourhood of “New Athens”, this residence and its courtyard, garden and two artists’ workshops have retained all of their original charm. This is where the painter Ary Scheffer received Parisian socialites during the Juillet Monarchy: Delacroix, Rossini, Sand, Chopin, Gounod, Tourgueniev, Dickens…The museum offers a precious setting for the paintings of Scheffer and his contemporaries, as well as the memorabilia of George Sand (furniture, painting, objets d’art and jewels).
