Musée de Grenoble
Musée de Grenoble Review
Place de Lavalette—on the south side of the river, where most of Grenoble is concentrated—is where you'll find the Musée de Grenoble, formerly the Musée de Peinture et de Sculpture. Founded in 1796 and since enlarged, it's one of France's oldest museums and was the first to concentrate on modern art (Picasso donated his Femme Lisant in 1921); an addition incorporates the medieval Tour de l'Isle (Island Tower), a Grenoble landmark. The collection includes 4,000 paintings and 5,500 drawings, among them works by Impressionists such as Renoir and Monet, and 20th-century masters like Matisse, Signac, Derain, Vlaminck, Magritte, Ernst, Miró, and Dubuffet. Artists from the Italian Renaissance and Flemish School are also represented.
Le Magazin-CNAC (Centre National d'Art Contemporain). Contemporary art enthusiasts should also check out the Centre National d'Art Contemporain. Behind the train station in an out-of-the-way district, it is noted for its distinctive warehouse museum and avant-garde collection. 155 cours Berriat, 38000. 04–76–21–95–84. www.magasin-cnac.org. €3.50.
