Musée Nissim de Camondo

Built in 1910, by the well respected jewish banker Count Moïse de Camondo this reproduction of an 18th century aristocratic mansion is located in the residential Plaine Monceau. The collection was bequeathed to France by Count Moïse de Camondo in memory of his son Nissim, who died as a soldier during World War I.

Since 1986, the museum has been completely restored by art patrons.

The Museum

Unlike the exterior being designed after the a little Trianon de Versailles, the rooms in the interior are finely decorated with panels in the manner of Louis XVI.

This museum is filled with a wonderful eighteenth-century collection. Such works include Savonnerie carpets and Beauvais tapestries.

The Aubusson tapestries showing six La Fontaine fables are among the most important of these hangings. There are also wonderful pieces such as the splendid Sevres porcelain Buffon service in which each piece is decorated with a different bird.
There are fine pieces of period furniture, and paintings by Guardi, Lancret, Hubert Robert and Horace Vernet.
