Scheffer lived in the house for nearly thirty years, painted many of his works there and received the artistic elite of his time in the workshop cum lounge, amongst whom were Chopin, Liszt, Lamartine, Delacroix, Rossini, Thiers and Dickens.
The collection consists of a number of paintings, art objects and furniture that illustrate this brilliant period.
Host your event in the museum's garden, a charming and exceptional green setting in Paris in the heart of the 'Nouvelle Athènes' area.
