This elegant, late-17th century country manor, boasting a magnificent garden, houses the works of the famous Grasse painter Jean-Honoré Fragonard and his descendants.
This gallant champion of love painted four beautiful scenes entitled The Progress of Love for Comtesse du Barry, the King’s mistress.
Today, replicas of these beautiful paintings adorn the salons of the museum.
In addition to the original drawings and paintings by this artist, in the stairwell there is an extensive and astounding trompe l’oeil work, attributed to Alexandre-Évariste Fragonard, son of Jean-Honoré Fragonard, which he is believed to have executed at age 13.
