Gallery named after Zervos, who was editor of Cahiers d'Art in Paris, in a house of his friend Romain Rolland. Nicely cool on hot day. Art is 20th century, surrealist, and other styles, paintings, prints, photos and sculptures. Some Picassos, Ernsts, and known names but...More

Being able to admire the transformation of Romain Rolland's house into this magnificent museum is a good reason on its own to visit. If on top of that you are keen on mid 20th century art (Hélion, Léger, Laurens,etc..) that's a bonus.

We spent an interesting hour in this beautifully-designed small gallery and very much enjoyed its Calders and Picassos, and Legers, in particular. The building itself is a poem of modern design in an ancient building, and the terrace with sculptures is a charming space. The...More
