The Ecole de Nancy Museum

Mobilier au musée de l'école de Nancy

The  turn of the 20th century saw a period of unprecedented growth for the École de Nancy, under the decisive guidance  of artists such as Émile Gallé in particular. Glassware, furniture, stained glass and ceramic arts all contributed to this period of revival. The Musée de l’École de Nancy, located on Eugène Corbin’s property (which was acquired by the town in 1951-1952) was built in a contemporary architectural setting that typifies the works that it exhibits. Despite the urban development of the surrounding district, most of the garden has been preserved.  In 1999 its original landscaping was restored in the spirit of the early 20th century. The furniture and other artworks on display inside the Museum also recreate the unique atmosphere of that period.

 

Collections

The museum’s collections are a testimony to the diversity of creative techniques practiced by the artists of this school, with a fine display of furniture, glassware, stained-glass, leather, ceramics, textiles, etc. from the period. Most of the ‘Masson dining room’ (salle à manger Masson), designed by Eugène Vallin, is now showcased in its original form. You can also enjoy other unique and prestigious pieces , such as Émile Gallé’s ‘Dawn and Dusk’ (Aube et crépuscule) bed and ‘Rhine River’ (Le Rhin) table, as well as Louis Majorelle’s ‘Villa Majorelle Bedroom’ (Chambre à coucher de la Villa Majorelle) and ‘Death of the Swan’ (La mort du cygne) piano. A lovely set of glassware designed by Émile Gallé, exemplifies the outstanding technical skills and naturalist ideas that inspired this artistic movement.

You may also visit the Villa Majorelle as part of individual guided tours organised by the Museum at 1:45 p.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
