THE LEGION OF HONOR
Petit Futé's opinion on THE LEGION OF HONOR
Built in 1924 in memory of the approximately 3 600 Californian soldiers killed in France during the First World War, it is one of the most beautiful museums in the city whose architecture is largely inspired by the Parisian museum of the Legion of Honour. The museum collection comprises more than four thousand works (paintings, sculptures, porcelain…) and the greatest European artists (Cézanne, Dalí, David, Gauguin, Picasso, Van Gogh…) are present. In the permanent exhibition, there is also an important selection of ancient arts from the vast Mediterranean Basin, including Egyptian sarcophagi sarcophagi. Also noteworthy is the impressive collection of Rodin (almost 80 pieces) and the great sculpture of the Thinker, commissioned before the artist's death in 1917. Admire the view of the bay, simply breathtaking!
