Chateau Corbin is situated in a medieval village

within the city of Liverdun, bounded by ancient fortifications built in the middle ages. It was named after the wealthy family ‘Corbin’ who resided in Nancy and at the turn of the 20th century, they were the

patrons of art schools in the Nancy region

such as Gallé, Majorelle, Prouvé, etc.

 

Liverdun had been home for many important artists,

whose artwork was later entitled ‘art nouveau’, a combination of representational and decorative elements in the artwork.

Most of them had painted the landscape and art nouveau architectures of Liverdun, the castle, and the river Moselle beneath it. In the 1900s it was a favourite weekend retreat of the bourgeoisie, the emerging, dominant middle class professionals at that time.

Liverdun

 

Location: Liverdun is situated in the

Meurthe-et-Moselle department (Lorraine region) in the north-east of France at 9 km from Nancy, the department capital.

Liverdun is 272 km from Paris and 388 km from the port at Calais.

 

Lorraine is one of the 27 regions of France. The administrative region has two cities of equal importance, Metz and Nancy.  Metz is considered to be the official capital since that is where the regional parliament is situated. The region's name is derived from the medieval Lotharingia.

 

The region consists of four departments: Meurthe et Moselle, Moselle, Meuse, Moselle and Vosges and contains 2,337 communes.
