The shared ideals of freedom and democracy, born in the 18th century philosophy of the Enlightenment, are the basis not only of the American Declaration of Independence but also of the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen adopted by the French Revolution. 

Many American artists chose to study in France during the 19th and early 20th centuries. These artists embraced the artistic language in vogue in their adopted country, notably realism and impressionism, which have a prominent place in the museum. French artists went to America to discover its gigantic cities and magnificent landscapes. 

Anne Morgan, daughter of the American banker John Pierpont Morgan, settled in Blérancourt in 1917 to help the civilian population there. After buying the estate in 1919, she restored it and transformed the norther pavilion, built in the 17th century, into a guest house which can now be visited.
