Housed in the Hôtel de Montmorency, built in 1743, the Hebert Museum displays the works of Ernest Hébert (1817-1908), a well-known painter in the second half of the nineteenth century. A fashionable portraitist with a delicate style, Hébert led an official career under the Second Empire and later during the Third Republic, when he was commissioned to decorate the Pantheon. He studied under Ingres at the Academy of France in Rome, before twice taking the directorship there himself, and it was in Italy that he found the major themes of his work, peasant scenes rather reminiscent of Millet.
