Gustave Moreau Museum

Last updated: 10 March, 2024

A museum dedicated to the works of Symbolist painter Gustave Moreau, housed in his former home and studio.

Moreau (1826-1898) was a French Symbolist painter known for his visionary and mystical works; he was inspired by mythology, biblical stories, and literary sources. His works are typcially richly detailed and often featured exotic and fantastical elements, combining classical themes with a sense of mystery and symbolism. His meticulous technique and use of vibrant colour also contribute to the dreamlike quality of his art.

He had a significant impact on the Symbolist movement, influencing artists such as Odilon Redon and Pierre Puvis de Chavannes.
