Paris Travel Planner   Musée Eugène Delacroix, Paris
The small Delacroix Museum was the artist's last home and studio in Paris, near the church of Saint-Sulpice where he was decorating the Chapel of the Holy Angels.




Tucked away on a tiny square behind the church of Saint-Germain-des-Prés (map), the Musée Delacroix was the artist's home and studio from 1857 until his death in 1863.

He moved here to be closer to the Église Saint-Sulpice, for which he did three paintings, including Jacob Wrestling the Angel.

Delacroix pallet

Well-known paintings in the museum include Mary Magdalen in the Wilderness and the Education of the Virgin. Seeing the artist's pallet and paint brushes reminds you of the work that went into these masterpieces.

The small apartment features paintings, drawings, and writings of Delacroix, as well as some furnishings. You can see family portraits and a painting of Jenny Le Guillou, Delacroix's servant throughout his life.

The studio, which Delacroix planned himself, gives a sense of the artist as he worked on his large paintings. The adjoining garden provides a lovely and peaceful spot for rest and reflection.

A chart shows the locations of other Delacroix paintings, including in the Louvre, the Orsay, the French Senate, and the National Assembly.
