The Fabre Museum: a celebration of artistic creation

An exceptional museum with an international influence, housing more than 5,000 works.

The Fabre Museum stands out with exceptional exhibitions that are constantly renewed and ever popular. You will be delighted with its richness and the major works it contains. It is an important player in the French and European museum landscape, and a cultural highpoint in Montpellier, founded by local painter François-Xavier Fabre.

Rubens, David, Corot, Delacroix, Ingres, Cabanel, Courbet, Matisse, Delaunay, Stael, and Valadon right through to Pierre Soulages are on exhibition here. Accessible to all, their works are arranged in smartly designed themed tours, making it easy even for children, formalised by the museum's offerings of "family tours".

Take your time over elegant and enveloping rooms dedicated to 19th-century creations, immerse yourself in the Orientalism of Delacroix, and succumb to the beauty of his Women of Algiers. Over in the section on 20th century art, you will find the dizzying colour patterns in the brilliant canvases of Matisse and Delaunay almost irresistible, and get caught up in the ultimate nuance: the intriguing large black format works of Pierre Soulages presented in a new exhibition space of textured glass. Why wait? Get onboard this journey through artistic periods or pictorial art through its various means of expression.
