The Jacquemart-André

Unbelievable! What a gem this Jacquemart-André Museum is. One couple: Edouard André and his wife Nélie Jacquemart-spent their lives collecting art and throwing parties in their 2 story home that was designed by a very ingenious architect. They had no children and donated it all to France. It is breathtaking-with works by Rembrandt, Donatello, Botticelli, Carpaccio, Uccello, Tiepolo, David, Vigée LeBrun, Gainsborough, Mantegna, Chardin and Fragonard amongst many others. Simply jaw-dropping!
