Gustav Moreau's museum Paris, June 2009

There is something very special about the Gustave-Moreau museum. The painter himself had it established and designed, so that his works could be gathered and displayed the way he wanted. The building was built at his expense, at the very spot where the artist lived and worked all his life long, and was ready in 1896… Two years later the painter died at the age of 72.
