The Musée des Beaux Arts is in the centre of Quimper, opposite the Cathedral, and home to a wonderful collection of paintings in a marvellous building. The collection is an amazing resource which can be visited time and time again, at leisure – we were only able to taste the offerings!
On our visit there was a special exhibition of self-portraits, on loan from the Quai d’Orsay Museum, no less.
The Museum has many paintings depicting Breton life in the past. The statue of King Gradlon is a model for the actual statue on the roof of the Cathedral.
The collection includes Classical French Paintings by painters such as Du Bois.
I would love to hear from you!
