Housed in a magnificent Renaissance pavilion bearing witness to the power of the Dukes of Bourbon, the Anne-de-Beaujeu museum presents numerous art and archaeological collections. Between Gallo-Roman figurines in white clay, medieval sculptures, collections of 19th century paintings, the Bourbonnais reveals its entire history.

To complete this immersion in the Art of Bourbonnais, a visit to Maison Mantin is an essential step. This residence built on the orders of Louis Mantin, a wealthy bourgeois of the 19th century, presents a rich decoration of gilded leather, Aubusson tapestries, old stained glass windows accompanied by an important collection of objects in the image of its owner.

EXHIBITION

Baroque treasures

This exhibition highlights the Baroque period through artistic commissions from the nobility and clergy in Bourbonnais in the 17th century. It presents unpublished paintings from this period of rich creation, several of which have never been exhibited.

A period often less well considered, the “Seicento” nevertheless has treasures of painting in this province as well as intense artistic activity, linked to commissions from the nobility and the clergy. Thanks to loans from both national museums and regional institutions, the Anne-de-Beaujeu museum offers the opportunity to (re)discover this period, which gave birth to numerous masterpieces, signed by artists like Laurent de la Hyre, Claude Vignon, Pierre Parrocel, Isaac Moillon, or Rémy Vuibert, student of Simon Vouet.
