A great variety of art represented.

Two/three hours later we adjourned for a glass of wine... Bought the book to read more about the gallery when back at home and to look at the... More

Talented artists, but none that you have ever heard of. OK, there might be one or two works by major artists in here, but essentially these are works that got a bronze medal or honorable mention, not the gold or silver.

It is a human size museum but the seasonal exhibits are always high ranking. There are thematic visits some at night that are recommandable

If you are an art lover and are visiting Montpellier this is a must, both for the building and the artworks. There are some well known gems by Courbet, a few works by Ingres and Delacroix, as well as paintings by contemporary artists from the region who have made an international name for themselves such as Viallat and Soulages.
