Among the most beautiful sites of the Loire Valley is the former Archbishop's Palace, classed as a Historical Monument, and which today houses the Museum of Fine Arts (4th-13th centuries). Its famous collections, including one of the largest collections of Italian Primitives outside the Louvre, make it one of the richest museums in France.
Among its masterpieces are paintings by Mantegna, Rubens, Rembrandt, Le Sueur, Champaigne, Nattier, Boucher, Restout, Hubert Robert, Perronneau. Arranged in beautiful reception rooms, these works evoke sculptures and objects of the daily life in an 18th century palace, all surrounded by sumptuous furnishings.
Works from the 19th century include Chassériau, Delacroix, Gervex, Degas, Monet and Rodin. The 20th century is represented by Asse, Briggs, Calder, Davidson, Debre, Denis, Peinado, Vieira da Silva and Zao Wou-ki.
