Fine-Arts were displayed in a Gothic convent from the XIV Century
Housed within the former Augustins Convent after the French Revolution, the museum displays paintings and sculptures from the early Middle Ages up until the start of the XX Century in this prestigious setting, including a collection of Roman capitals and Gothic sculptures.
Don’t miss: the colony of gargoyles that has taken up residence in the cloister!
This fascinating venue combines the beauty of its cloister, the elegance of its church and collections that are unique in Europe. The remarkable room of Roman capitals and its recent installations by Pardo sit alongside Gothic sculptures displaying masterpieces like the capital showing the martyrdom of Saint John the Baptist or Notre-Dame-de-Grasse. On the first floor, various rooms present sculptures and schools of European painters from the XVII to the XIX centuries, including some big names like Vigée-Lebrun, Murillo and Delacroix.
