At the heart of the Royal City of Loches, visit the family home of the painter, Emmanuel Lansyer (1835-1893). Friend of the poet José-Maria de Heredia, and pupil of Viollet-le-Duc and Gustave Courbet, this artist was considered in his time as one of the best landscape artists. The Lansyer house will enable you to admire over a hundred of his canvases among his outstanding collection of Japanese art, and a rare collection of original engravings by Piranesi, Canaletto, Gustave Doré, Millet, Hugo and Corot or sketches by Delacroix. Around the house, the garden has been restored according to an original water-colour painting from that period.
