It is our pleasure to welcome Valérie Lagier, Chief Heritage Curator of the Franco-American Museum of Blérancourt Castle. The Franco-American museum is the only one in France dedicated to the relationships between France and the United States.

The castle’s team produced a unique video for us in which Museum Director Rodolphe Rapetti will give us a warm welcome. Valérie Lagier will talk about the incredible history of the French and American friendship. You will watch -at your leisure- the video before joining Valérie, who will be live from the museum and ready to answer all your questions!

This event is in two parts: first you will watch the 20min video that we will send you one week before the event; second, you will meet Valérie Lagier who will give a brief presentation followed by a live Q&A.

Online Event in English.

ABOUT CHÂTEAU DE BLÉRANCOURT
Unique in France, the Franco-American museum, dedicated to the France and United States relationships, was built on the ruins of a XVII century castle. It was founded in 1924 by Anne Morgan, daughter of the American financier J.P Morgan, who established a humanitarian organization to help rebuild the region, the CARD.

This museum allows to present art collections following 3 great themes: Les Lumières’ ideals which are at the origins of the first alliances between the two nations; the battles in which France and the United States fought side by side; and the Art, starting point of numerous transatlantic exchanges.

Unique en France, le musée franco-américain, consacré aux relations entre la France et les États-Unis, est construit sur les vestiges d'un château du XVIIe siècle. Il a été fondé en 1924 par Anne Morgan, fille du banquier américain J.P. Morgan, qui installe au château en 1917 une organisation humanitaire pour la reconstruction de la région, le CARD.

Ce musée permet de présenter les collections selon trois grandes thématiques : les Idéaux des Lumières à l’origine des premières alliances entre les deux nations, les Épreuves pendant lesquelles la France et les États-Unis ont combattu côte à côte, et les Arts, sujet de nombreux échanges transatlantiques.
