Located near Neuilly-sur-Seine, the Musee Jacquemart-Andre was made from the private abode of Edouard Andre, the scion of a protestant banking family.
Edourd spent a lot of his considerable fortune in purchasing works of art, following which he showcased them in his brand new mansion built by renowned architect Henri Parent. The museum is divided into five major sections, The Informal Apartments, The State Apartments, The Italian Museum, The Winter Garden, as well as the Private Apartments.
The last one gives the museum the feel of a family home. The museum house works by Andrea Magenta, Anthony van Dyck, Neri di Bicci, and many more. A salon and the forecourt were used during the filming of the movie Gigi.
