At the head of Cognacq-Jay museum for two years, Annick Lemoine has had a contagious sense of wonder: listening to her talk about “her” XNUMXth century collections is a treat. It must be said that “his” museum is akin to a “small Louvre” with its stunning collections brought together by the founder of La Samaritaine Ernest Cognacq and his wife Marie-Louise Jay.

The walls of the Hôtel de Donon (end of the XNUMXth century) indeed house treasures: paintings by Canaletto, Guardi, Boucher, Fragonard, Vigée Le Brun, Greuze, Watteau and La Tour rub shoulders with porcelain from Saxony and Sèvres as well as goldsmith objects and stamped furniture.

A lover of the Marais whose architecture, galleries and diversity she admires, Annick Lemoine has a curriculum vitae as long as the XNUMXth century (to which her museum is dedicated): former resident of the prestigious Villa Médicis, heritage curator, doctor in history of art, specialist in European painting of the XNUMXth and XNUMXth centuries, former scientific director of the Fontainebleau art history festival, she has built a reputation for excellence with the successful exhibitions of which she has been a curator at the Petit Palais, the Villa Medici, the Louvre and the Metropolitan Museum in New York. In short, nothing but heavy!
