Fine Art Museum Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

The museum has some major works of art by overseas artists like the Cavalier with falcon by Rembrandt, the Olive Grove by Van Gogh, The Family of Acrobats by Picasso, a Van Gogh by Francis Bacon... as well as lesser works by Renoir, Monet, Sisley, Gauguin or Chagall, but the museum is particularly rich in works from the Scandinavian schools, especially the colourists of Göteborg. Modern Nordic painting only dates back to the beginning of the 19 C, and the museum has works from all the schools, not only Swedish, but also Danish and Norwegian, which have since developed in Scandinavian painting. . There are rather few works from the Golden Years, (1815-1850), but the Skagen School steals the scene with a canvas by Kroyer picturing a joyful group of artists in a fishing village in North Jutland. From the same period, the Grez-sur-Loing School (made up of Norwegian and Swedish painters in this village south of Fontainebleau) brings a little piece of France seen through the eyes of these Nordics who fell in love with impressionism. Some of the most representative are Carl Larsson, Richard Krohg, and Bruno Liljefors. They were followed by the colourists of Göteborg who, as their names suggests, worked above all with colour, independently of the figurative aspect of painting. The museum is also the proud possessor of two canvasses by Munch, and sculptures by Carl Miles.
