The Donon Mansion houses, in a 16C setting, a collection of 18C European art brought together by the founders of la Samaritaine. Presenting drawings and paintings along with precious objects and furniture, the whole evokes the refined life of the Century of Light. Watteau cartoons, Rembrandt paintings, Largillière, Chardin, sculptures by Houdon and Clodion, Venetian paintings: an exceptional collection.
