  • You can visit this attraction with the digital Paris Museum Pass. Please download it before you visit!
  • Discover this lesser-known yet world-class museum
  • Take a look at the artist's unique and symbolic paintings as well as many other artifacts

Created by the painter’s niece Marie Henner in 1921, the museum comprises over 130 portraits, biblical scenes, and mythological landscapes by the artist in his trademark symbolist style. You’ll also find approximately 1,000 sketches, documents, and souvenirs to peruse that give an insight into the artist's thoughts and processes.

Henner’s style of Symbolism was in great contrast to the Realist movement of the time. He was deeply influenced by the painting of the Italian Renaissance and the museum includes a plethora of his drawings and sketches that follow the evolution of his process.
