Description

This engaging structure, a listed monument since the 1950s, features a stone parallelepiped with almost 4,500m/14,764ft² of displays, whose volumes seem to float above a glass wall. It is divided into three areas: the nave; a black room devoted to video projections and a great white room. The bequests include 150 drawings and permanent loans of 140 other works. Visitors can admire five huge oil canvases (5 x 4m/16 x 13ft) by Oliver Debré.
