Nissim de Camondo’s apartments

Nissim’s apartment has not been preserved in its original state; the furniture is now in his study. A portrait of his grandfather, Comte Nissim de Camondo (1830-1889), painted by Carolus Duran in 1882, hangs above the steel and gilt bronze bed. A bronze equestrian statuette representing his sister Béatrice, made by Georges Malissard in 1923, stands on the demi-lune chest of drawers. Several early nineteenth-century paintings reflect the Camondo family’s interest in hunting and horse riding.

The adjacent room, whose walls are covered with red silk, was originally Nissim’s bedroom. It is now used to present thematic exhibitions that change regularly.

A Dressing Room and Bathroom complete the apartments.
