The basics

Before Musée Gustave Moreau opened, the artist already began to alter the home’s interior before his passing, transforming the space into a mini-museum. The eclectic home, complete with a spiral staircase and brightly painted walls, has three floors with the first displaying the artist’s personal keepsakes, family portraits, and paintings gifted by fellow artist friends Edgar Degas and Théodore Chassériau. The second and third floors are large studios comprised of hundreds of paintings and watercolors, as well as more than four thousand drawings. Many of Moreau’s works are centered around Greek mythology and the Bible.
