Main collections

- Soulages Collection

Collection Soulages © Musée Fabre / Montpellier Agglomération

This is the first of the museum's galleries of contemporary art, newly-installed following major renovation and rebuilding work. The gallery houses the exceptional group of works donated to the Montpellier Agglomeration by Soulages in 2005, from his earliest paintings of "black light" created in 1952, to the 1990s.

47 - Soulages Collection

Collection Soulages 2 © Musée Fabre / Montpellier Agglomération

On Level 1 of the museum's new contemporary art building – forming a perimeter "wall" around the museum – the gallery features an exceptionally high ceiling, and lateral light filtered through opaque glass panels. The resulting exhibition area, bathed in soft natural light, is the setting for large-format works by Pierre Soulages, who collaborated with the museum on the museographic conception of the space.

48 - Jean Fournier Gallery

On the ground floor, at the rear of the Bourdon Court, this vast gallery opens onto the street with a series of views and perspectives that establish a dialogue between the museum's interior and its surroundings. Dedicated to one of the great French gallery-owners of our time, the space celebrates the renewal of abstract painting from the post-war period to the present, through the work of Simon Hantaï and the Supports-Surfaces group, with close links to the Languedoc region.
