This page from the Musee des Beaux-Arts provides ready access to 14 identified collections within the Musee's impressive holdings, which include paintings, sculptures, drawings, and objets d'art dating from the fifteenth century to the twenty-first. "Who owns these paintings" presents paintings on deposit at the Musee des Beaux-Arts as part of a national art repatriation effort, Musees Nationaux Recuperation (MNR: National Museums - Recoveries). This effort seeks to return works of art, that were stolen or taken by the Nazis during World War II, back to their owners. A complete catalogue of MNR works is online at http://www.culture.gouv.fr/documentation/mnr/. "Le jardin des sculptures" is a three-minute video walk-through of the sculpture garden. Remodeled in the 1990s, the sculpture garden is one of two interior courtyards with a glass ceiling so that sculptures can be viewed in natural light. Visit "Still Lifes" for images of flowers and fruits, including Redoute roses, or the collection titled Rouen for views of the museum's home town.
