    Lovely, surprising collection: two Philippe de Champaigne (the Visitation and the Crucifixion), the famous Coronation of the Virgin of Enguerrand Quarton for lovers of cities, well watch the predella.

    It is a small museum, few works but major for the most part. Ground floor, ivory statue (comparable to that of the Ste Chapelle of the Louvre), statue two-sided quite amazing, medieval also. On the floors, in addition to the inevitable crowning of the Virgin, whose aesthetic interest is doubled to highlight iconography by the conservation of the price, we can see major works from the Mignard and same unPhilippe of Champaigne. One regret, however, the absence of catalogue of the Museum.

    Located in front of the Papal city, Villeneuve is a sleeping beauty, between the Tower Philippe Le Bel, who's on the lookout at the edge of the Rhône and its chartreuse that serves as a blessing. Dozing in the summer languor, where cicadas are the only ones not napping, the small city offers its cardinal liveries compared to those moon. Among them, the former mansion of cardinal Annibal de Ceccano, Archbishop of Naples, prince of a church which at that time there (middle of the fourteenth century) was a glitzy lifestyle. It is this urban Palace, which today serves as setting to a beautiful collection of religious paintings and furniture that honors Villeneuve. Among these works, it is one that is worth only the movement, it is the crowning of the Virgin of the master illuminator Enguerrand Quarton. One cannot but admire the crowd of the details of this extraordinary altarpiece where reads the creative expansion of a Quattrocento Avignon. The painter, in addition to an allegory to the Virgin, presents his vision of purgatory and hell that is not unlike evil fantasy of Bosch. It's beautiful and we stay literal "glued" to such a masterpiece whose color splash Panel. See and see again, for the pleasure of the eyes and emotion provided. * Great in the sense of its etymology is perfect for this work since the adjective means all at once, which is fantastic and what inspires fear. In this double meaning, the altarpiece of Enguerrand Quarton's look a parable terrifying and soothing.
