Eugene Delacroix National Museum occupies the place of Fürstenberg, the apartment of the great romantic painter and his studio, located in a hidden garden to the rear of the building.

Located in the last apartment and the last workshop held by the painter Eugene Delacroix National Museum is both a memorial and a tribute to the artist instead. Indeed it was created at the initiative of the greatest artists of the 1920s, Maurice Denis, Henri Matisse, Paul Signac particular.

Delacroix moved 6 rue de Furstenberg December 28, 1857, leaving the studio in the Rue Notre-Dame - de-Lorette he rented since 1844 and was too far from the Saint-Sulpice church of which he was to complete the mural of a chapel, the Holy Angels. The new home is decorated with a small garden in which he built his studio. The day after moving in, it shows in his diary: "My home is definitely charming. [...] The view from my little garden and smiling aspect of my studio always cause me a feeling of pleasure. »

After the death of the painter August 13, 1863, the St. Vincent de Paul Society becomes tenant of the premises. In 1928, the owner, Charles Panckouke seems to demolish the workshop to build a garage. It was then that the instigation of Maurice Denis and friends and admirers of the painter Eugène Delacroix a Friends Society was formed and gets to rent the premises - apartment and workshop-to organize it, almost every year an exhibition, ensuring the radiation of the painter and promoting, through donations, the beginnings of a collection.

The exhibited works are part of permanent collections: paintings, with a fine collection of religious paintings (including the famous Madeleine in the desert presented at the show in 1845), drawings, including some beautiful preparatory drawings for murals of St. Sulpice, the almost complete set of engraved work of painter and a rich collection of autographs (the cross-matching of Delacroix with his cousin Pierre-Antoine Berryer) and various souvenirs including objects brought from Morocco by the painter in 1832. added to several paintings deposited or loaned by the department of Paintings of the Louvre Museum, the painter's works as close to Léon Riesener or Paul Huet, sculptures filed by the department of Sculptures, including cats Antoine -Louis Barye, as well as drawings of the graphic Arts Department incurred by turnover because of their fragility.
