Museum of Modern Art André Malraux, Le Havre

4.5
The impressionist painting collection at Museum of Modern Art André Malraux is the second most extensive in France, after that of the Orsay Museum in Paris. Facing the sea, this museum is a smooth, transparent assembly of glass and steel posed on a concrete pad. The large windows let in the highly variable light of the Normandy coast (carefully filtered to protect the art, of course)--a light that inspired many of the painters in the museum's collections. There are works by Claude Monet and other well-known artists, including Corot, Delacroix, Courbet, Degas, Manet, Renoir, Gauguin, Sisley, and Pissarro. The museum houses the largest collection of works by Eugène Boudin in the world. Modern art is also well represented here.

    Fine Museum very well placed on the seafront, very beautiful works of Boudin and other hand in August he must love Pierre and Gilles, if one adheres it will be rather disappointed... Like me! So in a nutshell very nice Museum but check the artist of the moment!

    Nice to pop in if you're there to see some beautiful Impressionist works. Probably not worth travelling to unless you are an avid fan.

    Impresionism and special exhibitions. Great small museum

    Interesting to discover that many artists were drawn to the area for its light, weather and subject matter.

    The collection is a nice surprise. The building is not very romantic.

    I loved the Musée. It is very well laid out and it presents a current exhibition alongside a small but significative permanente collection, including Monet, Manet, Gauguin, Van Gogh and many, many more.
