Musée d'Art Moderne et Contemporain (Modern and Contemporary Art Museum)
Musée d'Art Moderne et Contemporain (Modern and Contemporary Art Museum) Review
A magnificent sculpture of a building (designed by contemporary architect Adrien Fainsilber) that sometimes dwarfs its contents, this spectacular museum frames a relatively thin collection of new, esoteric, and unsung 20th-century art. Downstairs, a permanent collection of Impressionists and Modernists up to 1950 is heavily padded with local heroes but happily fleshed out with some striking furniture; all are juxtaposed for contrasting and comparing, with little to no chronological flow. Upstairs, harsh, spare works must strive to live up to their setting; few contemporary masters are featured. Drawings, watercolors, and paintings by Gustave Doré, a native of Alsace, are enshrined in a separate room.
