The Camille Claudel Museum is home to around 300 paintings. Ancient painting is represented by a small number of objects from different schools, which have been added to the collections through donations received by the museum.
Some 18th century paintings from Alfred Boucher’s collection are remarkable, such as Le Serpent d’airain (The brazen serpent) by Corrado Giaquinto, Tête de vieillard by Noël Hallé or La Jeunesse de Turenne by Jean-Baptiste Le Prince. The Portrait of Claude Bouthillier de Chavigny (around 1643) and Le Livon by Joseph Vernet (1764) were acquired for their connections with the history of Nogent-sur-Seine and its surroundings.
The majority of the paintings date from the 19th or early 20th century. There are coherent sets of exhibits, such as the paintings by Léonce Vaÿsse donated by the artist, the paintings by Alfred Boucher acquired in conjunction with his sculptures and those by René Demeurisse donated by his daughter. Finally, the magnificent Emile Boeswillwald collection is a testimony to the roots of this family of architects and artists in Nogent, who owned a house in the commune. They mainly feature portraits and still life works.
