Overview

The Museum of Fine Arts The Museum of Fine Arts or le Musée de Beaux-Arts was created in 1793 and is housed in one of the striking 18th century buildings in Place Stanislas. The museum's walls are a witness to the architectural and urban development of Nancy. The restoration of 15th to 17th century fortifications in the basement of the museum has firmed its link between the old and new towns or indeed between the former Dukedom of Lorraine and modern Nancy. Development became necessary due to the increasing size of the collections. This led to an important extension in 1999 entailing a complete restructure of the museum in order to cater for young and adult visitors alike. The auditorium, temporary exhibition galleries, children's workshops, book shop and the Friends of the Museum Association all provide a large variety of cultural events for your benefit. Collections On display are works representing every European school of art, spanning a period from the 14th to the 21st century. The museum's impressive painting collections include a series of works by Pérugin, Tintoretto, Caravaggio, Rubens, Delacroix, Monet, Modigliani, Dufy, Picasso, etc.... You are also assured to see the creations of both contemporary French and foreign artists. Visitors must not forget to admire works by famous Lorraine painters Claude le Lorrain, Emile Friant, Victor Pouvé, Etienne Cournault, Jules Bastien Lepage ... The collection also features sculptures by Rodin, Maillol, Zadkine, César, Dietman ... The Print Room exhibits periodically works taken from its rich collection of sketches, prints and engravings by artists such as Callot and Grandville. Finally, an original scenographic presentation of the Daum crystal collection allows visitors to explore 100 years of Nancy's well-known glasswork's production.

Interesting collection in a beautiful building: a lot of big names have paintings/works here. Too bad there was nothing appropriate for children.

Ordinarily I wouldn't go to a fine art museum but we had some time to kill on a cold and snowy Saturday in Nancy. There's a broad range of exhibits with a lot of focus on religious works and we enjoyed 3 hours here.

Both the permanent and itinerant exhibits were beautiful, and it's easy to spend a couple of hours there on a rainy January day, as we did this morning. Recommended.
