The universe of Maison Courbet is linked to the history of
the famous painter Gustave Courbet. Lovers of women and nature,
Gustave Courbet is also a revolutionary of the Place Vendôme.
During the commune of Paris, he wanted to relocate the famous Vendôme
column and he imagined a monument to glorify peace, to be situated
on the street of the same name. In order to challenge the codes of
the Place Vendôme, the Courbet House has placed ecology and ethics
at the top of its priorities
