Luxembourg Garden

The Jardin du Luxembourg, or the Luxembourg Garden, located in the 6th arrondissement of Paris, was created beginning in 1612 by Marie de' Medici, the widow of King Henry IV of France, for a new residence she constructed, the Luxembourg Palace. The garden today is owned by the French Senate, which meets in the Palace. The park, which covers 23 hectares, is known for its lawns, tree-lined promenades, flowerbeds, the model sailboats on its circular basin, and for the picturesque Medicis Fountain, built in 1620.

Les Jardins d’Eugene Delacroix

Reached via the painter’s last abode, the garden is as significant a part of the Musée Eugène Delacroix as the house and the studio. Recently refurbished, the work was completed in December 2012, it now offers visitors a wealth of plants and flowers evidencing the tastes of its former owner. 
Eugene Delacroix (1798­‐1863) was an extremely influential French Romantic painter. He had a long successful career. His technique is said to have had a lasting impact on subsequent generations, such as the Impressionist and Post­‐Impressionist movements. 
When Delacroix decided to give up his large studio on Rue Notre-­Dame­‐de­‐Lorette his choice of the Rue Furstenberg was largely due to the existence of a small garden for his exclusive use with the possibility of building a studio there. He would therefore be able to evolve in an oasis of greenery and calm set amid a lively district. The artist thus had his studio built in this garden of around 400 m2, hidden from the road. Just after moving in, he wrote in his Journal.

(December 28, 1857): "My apartment is decidedly charming. I felt slightly melancholic after dinner to find myself uprooted once more. I gradually became reconciled with the idea and went to bed delighted. Woke up the next day to see the most gracious sun on the houses opposite my window. The view of my little garden and the cheerful appearance of my studio always make me happy».
The garden and museum Eugène Delacroix are located on The Place de Furstenberg.
The place de Furstenberg, where Delacroix decided to live, is famous as one of the most charming squares in Paris. It is, in fact, a street, as the central island does not create a roundabout for traffic.

The small square is planted with four pawlonias, which create a particularly romantic feel in the springtime, which is heightened at night by the street light with five globes. In the late seventeenth century, this area formed to forecourt to the abbatial palace of the Saint Germain des Prés Abbey, which is still visible at the beginning of the street. The buildings lining the square were all outbuildings. The coach houses for the carriages and the horses were on the ground floor, while the servants quarters were on the upper floors, which explains why these structures were not particularly well built.
