James Monroe's Paris home

The Folie de Bouëxiére, Monroe’s home in Paris, has been demolished but is reimagined here by contemporary artist Christian Bénilan. Many of the furnishings purchased by the Monroes for this diplomatic residence were also used in their subsequent homes, including the White House.
