Museum “On the renoir side”

Discover the House of one of the masters of Impressionism Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919) in Essoyes in Champagne, the Village of Renoir.

First welcomed at the Espace Renoir, visitors will discover through the screening of a film and the permanent exhibition on the Renoir family how the painter became fond of this small village where he spent nearly 30 summers.
With the "Renoir Route" in the heart of the village, visitors will take their steps in those of Renoir to discover the village. They will pass the house of Gabrielle, his muse, cross the Ource the charming river that runs through Essoyes and which often inspired the painter, so they will reach the other site Renoir. They will then enter the intimacy of the Renoir family by visiting the Maison Renoir and its original works, the painter's studio and the gardens to conclude their journey with a visit to the family graves at the cemetery.
Indeed, Auguste Renoir loved this village so much, that the painter, his wife Aline (originally from Essoyes), and their three sons, Pierre the actor, Jean the filmmaker and Claude said Coco, the ceramicist born in Essoyes are all buried there.
At the end of the tour, they will be able to complete their discovery of the world of Renoir by walking one of the four marked hiking trails. They will admire the landscapes that Renoir has reproduced on his paintings. Some reproductions mark the circuits.
