  • This museum is a gem in itself... for the beauty of its architecture. Sobriety and brightness. Possibility of great intimacy with the works on display. Picasso, Calder, light, Helion, Giacometti, and many other artists brought together by the willingness of Yvonne and Christian Zervos. A must-see.

  • The Zervos collection is exceptional: Picasso, Giacometti, Calder, Kandinsky... but also the tapas of Papua New Guinea, a dogon figure with arms raised, a fragment of kourou and antiques of the Cyclades... A must see!

  • Amazing to discover the number of great artists a1960 de1930 who succeeded in Vezelay following Rolland and Zervos with his art books. Not to be missed if you like the beautiful places and the modern art of Miro, Calder and Picasso to Kandinsky to Giacometti. To see.
