Le Musée du Petit Palais Review

This residence of bishops and cardinals before Pope Benedict built his majestic palace houses a large collection of old-master paintings, the majority of which are Italian works from the early-Renaissance schools of Siena, Florence, and Venice—styles with which the Avignon popes would have been familiar. Later works here include Sandro Botticelli's Virgin and Child, and Venetian paintings by Vittore Carpaccio and Giovanni Bellini.
