Musée de l’École de Nancy France Visit the Art Nouveau masterpiece Emile Gallé.

ナンシー派美術館Nancy

Art Nouveau emerged in Europe at the end of the 19th and 20th centuries.

The place where Art Nouveau flourished most was Nancy, France.

And at the heart of this were the Nancy School, as Gallé and Jacques Gruber were known.

Musée de l’École de Nancy exhibits a collection of such representative Art Nouveau works.

It is not a very large museum, but the works on display are as good as those in larger museums.

It is one of the must-visit attractions when visiting Nancy.

Now let me introduce you to some of them.

How to get there

From Nancy train station, you can either walk or take a bus.

It takes 10 minutes by bus or 20-30 minutes on foot.

The time required

Depending on the season you visit, you should only need about an hour to view the museum, even if you take a little longer.

In warmer weather, you can take a leisurely stroll through the gardens.

History

Opened as a museum on 26 June 1964 in the converted residence of Eugène Corbin, patron of Émile Gallé.

The collection of works began after the 1894 Lorraine Exhibition of Contemporary Decorative Arts, when 17 works by Gallé and others were collected.

The entrance to the museum on Serjean Blandin Street is so confusing that you almost walk right past it.

The words Musée de l’École de Nancy can be found by the blue door.

A small flag is displayed on the corner of the building.

This is almost the only sign for the museum, so it is quite confusing.

It can be a bit unsettling as there is no one inside the entrance.

In a Paris museum, you have to go through security checks, so there is always someone there.

At the end of the staircase, it looks like an entrance, but it is not.

Walk along the building and turn further right.

Once inside, you can see the building and the garden, which gives the museum an atmosphere of a museum.

One of the charms of stained glass is that it can be seen from different angles and in different light.

Summary

Nancy School museum with a collection of Art Nouveau works, mainly by Gallé.

I visited without any prior knowledge and was more than able to appreciate the splendour of Art Nouveau.

I had not expected to see so many works by Gallé on display.

Of these, we were particularly impressed this time by the excellence of the furnishings.

The designs, and even the materials, were all of interest.

This is a great place to stop by when visiting Nancy.

We visited the Nancy School Museum first on our sightseeing route, but it is possible to make it the last stop.

However, due to the distance from the station, it is personally better to visit first, considering the time adjustment for the return journey.

And one final note on visiting the Nancy School Museum.

It is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Take extra care when planning your itinerary.

Thank you again for reading to the end of this issue.
