Voyage into the heart of Impressionism

From Paris, you can take the direction of Auvers-sur-Oise, the landscapes that spread out before you form a succession of paintings.

The château, for a unique discovery of the time of the Impressionists. The Musée Absinthe, dedicated to the famous "green fairy" that was the muse of artists in the 19th century. The village of Auvers-sur-Oise and its surroundings are still filled with the presence of these modern masters of painting.  Along the emerald water of the Oise, Pontoise and its museum guards the memory of Camille Pissarro, the eldest of the Impressionists, who attracted here and to Auvers numerous painters such as Van Gogh, Gauguin and Cézanne… At Osny, the château de Grouchy pays homage to the post-Impressionist William Thornley. On the way back to Paris, stop at Sannois where the Musée Utrillo-Valadon presents the works and studio of Maurice Utrillo. Suzanne Valadon, his mother, modelled for Renoir before becoming an artist herself…
