Very educational because the collection is meticulously arranged chronologically, annotated and complemented with political maps for each period.The earliest pièces are I think some sculptures and triptychs 12-13 th C finishing at the mid-16th C (I think).

This was a nice spot to stroll through centuries of artwork all housed in a historic building. I enjoyed the variation in the artwork as well as the architecture of the building itself.

Attached to the palais du pape, it is not surprising that the collection is made up of religious paintings from the 13th to 16th centuries. There are many beautiful madonnas including an ethereal and moving painting by Botticelli. Highly recommended.

The amount of religious iconography that is 'right there' on the walls is amazing. One is able to get up very close to the pieces and get a real insight to the craftsmanship and artistic endeavours of centuries old icons. Not being religious I don't...More
