Explore diverse works of art by Picasso and the collections of Christian Zervos at Musee Zervos, a modern art museum. The medieval basement houses manuscripts and is the site where writer Romain Rolland died. Upstairs houses sculptures from Giacometti and the "Grasshopper" painting by Ernst. On the ground floor, small sculptures and a massive relief cast by Henri Laurens are alongside a large mobile by sculptor Calder. Displayed in the Picasso room, works by Pablo Picasso and Julio González describe the link between these two artists.

Don't miss lunch at "the pot-luck", through the extraordinary library "Gold stars" (rich of varied works) and see the Basilica of course... You will spend a wonderful day...
Laurent tisonMay 27, 2017Amazing 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.
Gilles GambaMay 26, 2017Friendly but there is not much to see it is true that the opening was recent I however will come back on my next visit to Vezelay
