Sometimes the best thing about a museum is the building itself. The Musée Jean-Jacques Henner is one three floors of a 19th century townhouse in the smart 17th arrondissement, just next to the sweet parc Monceau.
Although Henner never lived or worked here, it was the studio of artists Guillaume Dubufe, whose work can be seen on the ceiling of the luxurious Train Bleu restaurant, in the library of the Sorbonne, or in the foyer of the Comedie Française.
Legend has it that the building was also the inspiration for Emile's Zola novel "Lola".
Freshly re-opened after renovation work to make it wheelchair-accessible and to restore certain rooms to their original colours (after a dodgy 70s paint job) the museum includes works by the artist on loan from the Louvre and Musée d'Orsay - the largest collection of his work in the world - as well as paintings, drawing and sculptures by other artists, taken from Henner's own collection.
Great art in a great setting!
