Musée Ingres Bourdelle

Montauban

14 Dec 2019

After a three-year expansion project, the Musée Ingres reopens its 19th-century building in Montauban, the birthplace of the French neoclassical painter Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, with a new display of its holdings of some 4,500 drawings and 44 paintings by the artist – as well as his personal violin. The museum has changed its name to the Musée Ingres Bourdelle, highlighting its extensive collection of sculptures by another Montauban native, and a pupil of Ingres, Antoine Bourdelle. Find out more from the museum’s website.
