Petit Futé's opinion on AG MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS

Vintage plate 2020

The Musée des Beaux-Arts d'Agen, located in the oldest part of the city, is already an architectural curiosity in itself, as it is made up of four private mansions from the 16th and 17th centuries, in which you can walk through time and art history. Among the 26 rooms of the museum are works by prestigious artists such as Goya, Tintoretto, Corot, Boudin, Sisley, Monet and Picabia, as well as famous creations such as the dishes of Palissy or the ceramic vases decorated by Rodin. We go down to the basement to discover a small collection of minerals, but also prehistoric objects, vestiges of the daily life of the first Lot-et-Garonne people. On the ground floor, we go back to Antiquity with collections from the Celtic and Gallo-Roman eras, the masterpiece of which is the Venus of Mas d'Agenais. You will also linger in the room where multiple objects from the Near East (Lebanon and Syria) are displayed, covering the periods from the Bronze Age to the Crusades. There is a large room to the left of the entrance with a rare circular fireplace from the Middle Ages. As you go upstairs and through the centuries, you will discover paintings, sculptures, furniture, earthenware and tapestries, all of which bear witness to the art of living from the 16th to the 20th century in all its forms and colours. Finally, we will not miss Le Choupatte and Le Minotaure de Lalanne, for the pleasure of the youngest and the oldest. In 2018, the museum has invested by acquiring, under the nose of the Americans, the painting Nature morte à la mésange, aux souris, aux noix, aux insectes et au vase de jasmins, executed around 1712-1713 by the painter Jean-Baptiste Oudry (1686-1755). This early work is contemporary with two still lifes by the painter, seized in 1793 from the Château d'Aiguillon and now on display in the Museum's 18th century rooms. Considered to be one of the finest purchases made by French museums in 2017, the painting contributes to the Musée d'Agen's reputation for its rich collection of 18th-century European works and the world's leading collection of early works by the painter Oudry.

Un superbe musée dans un lieu non moins incroyable. comptez au moins 3 heures de visite pour profiter du lieu. Des collections très variées de toute les époques, et notamment de belles peintures du 17 / 18e siecle

Un musée très intéressant avec des pièces maîtresses qui valent la peine d'être vues pour connaître un peu plus l'histoire du 47. Par contre le musée n'est pas mis assez en valeur par la ville je trouve et la plupart des gens n'y vont pas par manque d'intérêt, dommage!

La base. Un musée à faire au moins une fois si on habite le secteur. Beaucoup d'objets anciens d'une grande valeur culturelle. On en ressort en réfléchissant au parcours de l'être humain dans l'Histoire.
