Maison des Arts de Bischwiller

Two artists native of Bischwiller lived in this picturesque 17th century Alsatian house, now the annex of the Laub Museum: Henri Baumer, famous for his wood inlays, and his son-in-law, Philippe Steinmetz, a painter.

Henri Baumer (1876-1968), a cabinet maker, was elected the best worker in France for marquetry, but he had many other talents: he made pen and ink drawings, models, coats of arms, family trees, besides being a knowledgeable local historian. His works are exhibited on the ground floor.

Philippe Steinmetz (1900-1987), an art teacher in Dunkirk, Lille, Nancy and Strasbourg, was an impressionist like Cézanne. His paintings reveal the influence of famous masters such as Signac, Le Sidaner or Ensor. He was a member of the Academy of Alsace. Scores of his works are displayed on the first floor.

Opening times and dates are subject to change depending on circumstances. Please take your precautions.
