Musée des Beaux-Arts de Bordeaux
Occupying two wings of an 1881 edifice, the Musée de Beaux-Arts de Bordeaux houses one of the most significant collections of European paintings and sculptures outside of Paris
, with a strong representation of Dutch and Flemish masters and local Bordeaux artists such as Odilon Redon. Take in the collection’s oil portraits, landscapes and naval scenes—and more current figurative and abstract masterpieces. Spanning over five centuries, the works are grouped chronologically by movement, so if you miss that Rubens or Bruegel, you can easily backtrack.
