Reims in Marne Département, Champagne-Ardenne, France
Musée des Beaux-Arts
The Fine Arts Museum based in the former abbey of Saint-Denis includes extensive collections spanning the period from the 16th to the 20th centuries.
The Museum of Fine Arts, once housed in the City Hall's attic, was transferred in 1913 in the Saint-Denis abbey, an eighteenth century building remodeled in the nineteenth century. Little affected by the First World War, the museum was able to remain in its original building. Its collections from, among others, major gifts of Rheims families, places it among the greatest museums of France. It preserves and exhibits paintings, sculptures, drawings and art objects from the sixteenth through the twentieth centuries: Cranach, the Le Nain brothers, David, Corot, Monet, Gauguin, Matisse, Sima, Vieira da Silva ...
