  • A most beautiful encounter. One of my favourite artists. It's not too much to handle either (you won't get gallery/museum fatigue). Lots of Denis' art, and a small amount of some of the other Nabis. The chapel Denis renovated with his friends in honour of his late wife Marthe is very special, in particular the Stations of the Cross he painted, and the frescoes depicting those who have epitomised each of the Beatitudes.
  • Tourism. ОБЯЗАТЕЛЬНО *. Very nice

  • The museum traces the period from Maurice Denis, so many artists, "nabis". The opportunity to indulge themselves quickly (the Museum is small) and often (€4,5 entry). And the decor of the Priory is not detrimental. To consume without moderation.
