Musée Maurice Denis (Priory Museum)
Musée Maurice Denis (Priory Museum) Review
This appealing museum in a historic priory is devoted to the work of the artist Maurice Denis (1870–1943) and his fellow Symbolists and to the Nabis—painters opposed to the naturalism of their 19th-century Impressionist contemporaries. Denis found the calm of the former Jesuit building, set above tiered gardens with statues and rosebushes, ideally suited to his spiritual themes, which he expressed in stained glass, ceramics, and frescoes as well as oils.
