References to French painting of the 19th century such as David, Courbet, Pubis de Chavannes, and a spectacular collection of sculptures by Rodin, Claudel and Carpeaux. After a visit to the 17th and 18th century ceramics, and a detour to the drawing room to discover Raphael's sketches, treat yourself to a trip back in time in miniature by discovering the relief plans of some fifteen fortified towns.
