Museum of the Renaissance, Ecouen

(4.4/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Housed in the Château d'Écouen, Museum of the Renaissance features the artwork of the Renaissance: paintings, sculpture, ceramics, tapestries, and more. Many of the pieces come from the collection of the Musée de Cluny. The château itself belongs to the category of Renaissance art, due to its origins. Art patron Anne de Montmorency commissioned the castle in the 16th century. An avid collector, he also invited several masters to decorate the house through frescoes and carvings, thus making a fitting home for all the Renaissance art that visitors can wander among today.

  • These angelic musicians are guar of the Baldwin D4URFE has boen on lihgno in Forez. There were in a chapel of the Baldwin D4URF2 which is still today very enigmatic: told its owner Honoré d ' Urfé who is the author of the novel River of l ' ASTRÉE was part of a secret literary society which was intended to reform the science policy and religion, his assumed name was the "ANGELIC society", but it foreshadowed the plans of the order of the Rosicrucian of Sir Francis Bacon , it so happens that this one comes in France for a diplomatic mission... If you are interested in the mysteries of the renaissance I invite you to consult this Book: the Gospel of FRANCI BACON, puzzles and mysteries to the time of Henri IV to the Blurb editions!

  • I was looking for details about life in the renaissance in France, to write a next historical novel. This museum is beua, well presented, furnished to perfection and his collections of projects are of great value. Let's start with the chapel which houses a copy of Leonardo da Vinci scene. Ugh, a copy will you tell me. Not at all because it is the same time as the original. As she better kept its color as the fresco of Leonardo, it became a great testimony to the beauty of the table. The rest of the Museum is exciting to insiders. Rooms, large rooms beautifully furnished, with paintings, and historic. Finally, enjoy a wonderful park. There are sting fuck. In total, a national museum unknown who deserves your visit.

  • The castle of the renaissance, even those who are not fans, will still stay stunned in front of this magnificent building. For history buffs, there is annually a great show with loads of extras, style a bit Puy Bishop, but in more modest necessarily. You should know that Leonardo has stayed in this castle. The surroundings are pleasant and bring a certain inner peace. That is, good ride

  • We have come to take pictures with a married couple who had a written authorization, we could not go further than the driveway paved in front of the Castle. The guardian of the entrance really wasn't cooperative or friendly.
