The Boudoir - Château de Chaalis

Artist: Walter Gay

The seriously stunning Château de Chaalis is around 40km from Paris and yes you can visit it, it's an art museum.  It was originally a Cistercian Abbey but what the monks would say about this fabulous boudoir is worth wondering about!  This version of the château was built in 1739 and at the time of this painting the Château was owned by Nélie Jacquart, an artist herself and a member of a rich banking family. She bought the Château after the death of Madame de Vatry and inherited the furnishings and amazing Vatry Murat art collection along with the château itself. She spent a fortune on it - installing electricity, heating and a telephone. She remodelled and renovated the whole château and was obviously immensely proud of it which is perhaps why Walter Gay was invited along to record it in all its glory. On her death in 1912 her will stated that the Château should become an art museum 'Abbaye Royale de Chaalis -Musée Jaquemart-André" open to all - what a gift.

What size frame do I need ?

Each piece of artwork in the Musée gallery has been resized to work perfectly with International 'A' paper sizes.

All you need to think about when framing your Musée artwork is that it needs tobe in the appropriate A sized frame.

This means that no part of your artworkwill be lost to cropping when choosing frame sizes. It also means thateverything will work proportionately in gallery walls, and print sets.


Our papers are loved for their vibrant tonal range and the handmade feel of their beautiful texture. They are 100% cotton based which gives an aesthetic expected with traditional fine art techniques.

Each piece is printed to order in house in our own print studio and delivered in sustainable packaging.

All Musée museum quality prints are professionally mounted on 2.4mm acid free art board ready to free stand or frame. Mounted prints also help to preserve the qualty of the edges and keep the prints perfectly flat with no risk of cockling. Cockling is the process by which a print starts to ripple due to changing levels of ambient moisture which are naturally present in the air in all our homes. Also, when you decide to either change your Musée artwork in your frames or swap them out for a new find, a Musée mounted print will stay flat and safe whilst in storage.
