Museum of Fine Arts
Built in 1881, the Bordeaux Musée des Beaux-Arts has just re-opened after several years of in-depth renovation. The museum displays works by some of Europe's greatest painters as well as Bordeaux artists from various periods and schools.
Currently, the Musée des Beaux Arts is closed on Saturdays. For other days of the week, refer to the practical information at the bottom of the page
The museum's collection is housed in two different places: the south wing is devoted to art from the 16th to the 18th century, and the north wing focuses on the 19th and 20th centuries.
Modern museography highlights masterpieces from Delacroix to Picasso as well as numerous restored little-known sculptures. A visit to the museum with family or friends is an entertaining learning experience, and it is fascinating to see which school a picture belongs to.
Among other artists, the collection includes works by Brueghel, Chardin, Corot, Pierre de Cortone, Delacroix, Van Dyck, Van Goyen, Kokoschka, Le Pérugin, Magnasco, Matisse, Picasso, Renoir, Rubens, Véronèse, etc. – as well as works by all major Bordeaux artists such as André Lhote, Albert Marquet, and Odilon Redon. Dutch painting is especially well-represented, and visitors from the Netherlands are interested and delighted.
