European painting and sculpture from the 15th to the mid-18th centuries

The monumental staircase designed by Fabre for the museum's earliest incarnation, leads to the first floor of the Hôtel de Massilian, and the continuation of the museum's collections of pre-19th-century European art. European paintings and sculpture from the 15th to the mid-18th centuries are grouped according to their various schools, testifying to the internationalising character of artistic movements during this period.
