    The 19th century is illustrated by a set of works ranging from Neo-classicism to Impressionism, graced by such great names as Delacroix, Pradier, Fantin-Latour, Monet and Gauguin. The second section presents 20th century art, with key works by the great names in modern art, including Matisse, Picasso, Léger and Ernst, through to the creators of the contemporary period with works by Soulages, Warhol, Nauman, Boltanski and Schütte who, along with many others, have contributed to the museum’s reputation.

    This collection is complemented by an extensive collection of drawings, including a number of sheets of great quality. Two of the museum’s rooms are taken up by Egyptian antiquities and Greek and Roman archeology.
