This very fine 13C town house, embellished with Renaissance additions in the 16C, became the property of local patron of the arts Hugues Krafft in 1910. He spent a large part of his fortune on its restoration after damage sustained during WWI.
When Hugues Krafft died in 1935, he bequeathed the property to the ‘Société des Amis du Vieux Reims' (Friends of old Reims), the organisation that now takes care of the artistic heritage represented by the building and its contents.
in particular, there is an exceptional collection of wood engravings by Albert Dürer, including The Apocalypse and Great Passion.
