Main collections

37 - Courbet Gallery

Salle Courbet © Musée Fabre / Montpellier Agglomération

This modern, light-filled space marks a complete break with the vaulted galleries on Level 1. The great well of light emerges as an architectural "event" in the context of the museum's itinerary of modern works, providing optimal overhead light for 16 paintings by Gustave Courbet, including The Bathers and The Meeting – masterpieces of modernity in the midst of the 19th century.

39 - Bazille Gallery

Salle Bazille © Musée Fabre / Montpellier Agglomération

The Bazille Gallery is the first of a series of rooms retaining their original French-style ceilings (part of the old Collège des Jésuites). Focusing on the pre-Impressionist period (1860–70) it highlights the links between the Montpellier painter Frédéric Bazille and his friends Renoir, Monet, and Sisley – all united in their quest for a new kind of painting combining a genuinely painterly approach, with scenes painted directly from life, out of doors. Bazille was struck down at a young age, in the Franco-Prussian war, but leaves a small, intense œuvre, most of which is now at the Musée Fabre (14 works).

40 - Castelnau Gallery

Salle Castelnau © Musée Fabre / Montpellier Agglomération

This light-filled gallery leads to the contemporary building constructed over the Bourdon Court, housing paintings from the second half of the 19th century. Southern French painters such as Castelnau depicted the city of Montpellier and the surrounding region. The gallery also presents work by Loubon and the Marseilles School, together with the refined Symbolism of the turn of the century, perfectly illustrated in the work of Carrière.
