  • The Fine Arts museum at Pont-Aven houses a collection of over 1000 works, including many from the Pont-Aven school.

    Inaugurated in 1985, The Fine Arts museum at Pont-Aven, which now has the ‘Musée de France’ label, aims to bring visitors closer to the 1000 or so works in its collection. You’ll find the work of artists inspired by Brittany, and in particular by Pont-Aven (Gauguin, Émile Bernard etc.), from the 1860s to the 1970s. Its permanent collection tells the history of Pont-Aven, the painters that came before and after the famous Pont-Aven school, the Pont-Aven school itself, and 20th century Breton painting in general. The museum regularly holds exhibitions focusing on a particular aspect of the works and opens the graphic arts reserve to the public. In 2010, the work of Serge Poliakoff, one of the great figures of lyrical abstraction (1900-1969), comes under the spotlight, as well as the work of Paul-Elie Ranson (1861-1909), a well-known Nabi painter.
