The Girodet Museum in the Loiret region suffered from the dangerously high levels of the river Seine. The museum is well-known for its collection of neo-classical paintings by its namesake Anne-Louis Girodet de Roussy-Trioson. It also has a notable collection of French Old Masters.
The onset of the flood was so rapid that art works by Théodore Géricault and Jean-Jacques Feuchère were affected by the flood. The museum can expect a hefty restoration bill for the damaged goods and has already set up a crowd-funder to help pay for the sizeable costs.
