Musée des beaux-arts de Rouen
The Musée des beaux-arts de Rouen (Fine Arts Museum of Rouen) is the proud keeper of the second largest collection of Impressionist works in France (after the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, of course). This makes sense considering so many of the movement’s artists were enamoured by Rouen’s charm. However, Impressionist paintings aren’t the only artwork on display here. The museum features works from a variety of different periods, including the Renaissance, Baroque Europe and Romanticism. It also boasts a good collection of sculptures, many of which are showcased in the museum’s dreamy courtyard called Sculpture Garden.
