The collections

The museum’s collections offer a vast panorama of the history of painting, from the end of the 16th century to the present day.


Considerable space is given to history painting, maritime paintings, artists of the Pont-Aven School, Nabis and Symbolism. The museum also exhibits Asian objects mostly given by marine officers.


The museum’s collections have acquired wide renown in the museum and art world, as is clearly demonstrated by the numerous requests for loans both from France and abroad.


The hanging arrangement may be modified to suit projects, the presentation of works in temporary exhibitions, or loans made to the museum.
