Several of the artist's rose paintings are on display here. The flowers depicted in the paintings came from his famed garden, which at one time consisted of approximately 4,000 roses. The home was located on the west side of Cahuenga Blvd. at Hollywood Blvd. on property Longpre´ obtained from Mrs. Wilcox Beveridge after he moved to Los Angeles in 1889. The artist, who was born in Lyons, France, desired the 65-foot-deep lots for his famed flower garden.
