daubigny’s house

daubigny's garden

Charles Daubigny’s house and garden have been in many Van Gogh paintings.  However, I wasn’t prepared for the work of art the house itself is.   On the inside, each wall is covered with beautiful paintings by Daubigny and his artist friends.  I especially liked his daughter’s room, with fairy tale characters and garlands of flowers.

Unfortunately, you’re not allowed to take pictures in there.   But I couldn’t resist.  The quality isn’t great (hard to shoot great footage when you’re skulking around guiltily.)  Consider this my first illegal act in France.

  2. Hi,
    sorry to ask here but I was unable to find a contact on your site to send a private email.

    thanks and best regards.
