Moreau's apartment

The Musée national Gustave Moreau is an art museum dedicated to the works of Symbolist painter Gustave Moreau (1826-1898). It is located in the 9th arrondissement of Paris at 14, rue de la Rochefoucauld, Paris, France.

The museum was originally Moreau's dwelling, transformed by his 1895 decision into a studio and museum of his work with his apartment remaining on the first floor. Today the museum contains Moreau's drawings, paintings, watercolors, and sculptures.
