Musee des Beaux-Arts de Nantes Tours

Inaugurated in 1900 and currently undergoing a thorough renovation and extension by the Stanton Williams architect group, the Musee des Beaux-Arts de Nantes (Nantes Museum of Fine Arts) is Nantes’ flagship art museum, celebrated for its large and varied collection of works, dating from the 12th to the 20th centuries.

Highlights of the vast permanent collection include works by Delacroix, Rousseau, Tintoretto, Perugino, Renoir, and Gauguin, among many others, with key pieces including Rubens’ The Triumph of Judas Maccabaeus, Delaunay’s David Triumphant and Chagall’s Le Cheval Rouge. A well-established series of temporary exhibits complement the main displays, with a greater focus on contemporary art, while late openings on Thursday evenings include music, dance and literature inspired events.
