The Renaissance : a new perspective

 

Visible from the Gallo-Roman area, the 16th Century collection is dedicated to the Italian influence and works inspired by Antiquity : the Education of Jupiter by de Frans Floris, The Death of Cleopatra by Marchesi da Cotignola...

The Renaissance room extends with a bare wall, showing the successive mutilations to the 11th Century vault over the centuries, thus allowing an archaeological reading of the architecture.
