The Ingres-Bourdelle Museum - History and collections
The Ingres-Bourdelle Museum will reopen in December 2019 after three years of work: thanks in particular to its Ingres, Bourdelle and archaeological wealth, it houses exceptional collections.
It originally housed only the modest collection of paintings by the mayor of Montauban. When it became a museum, the former bishopric of the town received a bequest from Ingres in 1867, soon joined by the treasures of the Archaeological Society of Montauban, and then the collection of another local child, the sculptor Antoine Bourdelle.
This catalogue celebrates the reopening of this museum with more than 4500 works, and tells the singular history of its works and its building. It reveals the unsuspected variety of its treasures, including an exceptional collection of ancient paintings, objets d'art and lapidary and archaeological treasures.
