Founded by Napoleon I, Musee des Beaux-Arts features drawings, paintings, and sculptures ranging from the Renaissance to the 20th century. The permanent collections--which fill 60 rooms--feature paintings by such artists as Carracci, Rubens, Caravaggio, Boucher, Renoir, Pissaro, Degas, and Monet. The drawing exhibition alone contains over 8,000 pieces. The statuary of the museum is similarly impressive, including "Hercules Slaying the Hydra of Lema" by Pierre Paul Puget.
