Musée Angladon - Collection Jacques Doucet - Avignon


Avignon

The art collection of a pioneer in high fashion

 

The Musée Angladon - Collection Jacques Doucet is one of the most attractive museums of Avignon. Located in the heart of the city, it is a beautiful 18th century building, conceived as a house museum, in accordance with the testamentary wishes of its founders, artists Jean Angladon (1906-1979) and Paulette Martin (1905-1988). Its deep mission is to share with the public the sumptuous collection of paintings and furniture inherited from the couturier Jacques Doucet (1853-1929), a pioneer in high fashion, connoisseur and valuable patron of artists and writers of his time. By giving these works a display in accordance to their quality, the Musée Angladon - Collection Jacques Doucet wishes to offer its visitors a special time viewing, sharing intimacy with the great artists of Impressionism and Modern Art: Degas, Daumier, Manet, Sisley, Vuillard, Derain, Picasso, Foujita, Modigliani, Van Gogh and Cézanne... The house preserves the privacy of an interior of art lovers through a series of themed rooms, ranging from the Renaissance to the 18th century, covering the European and Far Eastern decorative arts.

 

The Museum is fully accessible to disabled people and strollers. Public’s labels are in English. We speak English.
