Fodor's Review

Built by Chancellor Nicolas Rolin, an important Burgundian administrator and famous art patron (he's immortalized in one of the Louvre's greatest paintings, Jan van Eyck's Madonna and the Chancellor Rolin), this museum across from the cathedral is noteworthy for its early Flemish paintings and sculpture. Among them is the magisterial Nativity painted by the Maître de Moulins in the 15th century, but the collection's star is a Gislebertus masterpiece, the

Temptation of Eve, which originally topped one of the side doors of the cathedral. Try to imagine the missing elements of the scene: Adam on the left and the devil on the right.
