On First Approaching the Modern Museum of Art
The Museum of Modern Art is at the south aspect of the Cathedral on the flank of the Place St.-Pierre. It is in the former Bishop's Palace at the end of a large park which contains several modern sculptures, both full figures and heads. The reconstructed interior now houses over 2.000 works and has much room for ancillary museum activity. The permanent collection of paintings is on the ground floor and includes a modest number of small sculptures. Other modern art includes glass works by Marinot and a section on African Art. On the first floor are drawings and other lesser art forms by all of the painters and an area for temporary exhibits.
