Flemish and Dutch painting in the 17th century

The itinerary begins in the Hôtel du Chevalier de Massilian, with the galleries of 17th-century northern European paintings, arranged in five rooms on a smaller, intimate scale, reminiscent of a traditional "collector's cabinet." The museum's important, stylistically coherent collection features a number of masterpieces, mostly from the Antoine Valedau bequest.
