  • This museum was built to house the collections of the generous donor Mr de Silguy in the nineteenth century. It is adjacent to the Town Hall and faces the Cathedral. If its exterior remained unchanged, inside gave way to a completely redesigned modern space. Rooms include works classified by periods, origins or currents (Italian, French, Dutch, Pont-Aven...), and others are home to temporary exhibitions (exhibition "The taste besides" on painters and collectors passenger was also underway during our visit.) On 27 March, we will have time to visit her...). This museum is very well designed, very didactic. Works my favorite are in two rooms on the ground floor dedicated to the breton art. A special mention too for the three rooms with Italian painting: hide there two works by ARTEMISIA Gentileschi. Notice to lovers of the school of Caravaggio.
