Main collections

43 - The Paris School

This corridor presents works by members of the Paris School, all of whom made the triumphant leap into abstraction in the 1950s and 60s. Works by Bissière, Vieira da Silva, De Staël, Poliakoff and Arpad Szenes testify to the vitality and originality of the art scene in France at the end of the Second World War.

44 - Hugo Gallery

Jean Hugo was an associate of Picasso, Cocteau and La Fresnaye in the 1920s, before retreating to the village of Fourques, near Lunel, where he spent the second half of his life far removed from the avant-garde scene. The Musée Fabre's collection presents a unique overview of his strangely charming, faux-naïve work, unmatched in any other French public museums – a tribute to one of the Barnes Collection's best-represented artists.

45 - Richier Gallery

This exhibition space on the ground-floor level is entirely devoted to sculpture, in the person of the great 20th-century artist Germaine Richier, a pupil of the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Montpellier. Works by her teachers,Guigues in Montpellier and Bourdelle in Paris, are also represented. Richier remained true to her southern French roots, drawing on regional fauna for her hybrid creatures, evoking the disturbing animal passions that inhabit and devour humanity.
