Unique in the world, the Ingres Museum in Montauban reopens in December
A museum enlarged, modernized and…renamed.



MONTAUBAN.- Located in the heart of one of the most attractive cities in the south of France, the Ingres Museum reopens after three years of major expansion and complete renovation.

The only museum in the world dedicated to Ingres, this flagship of the french culture houses an exceptional collection of paintings and drawings of the master, the largest after the Louvre Museum.

It is a unique heritage to discover from December this year and a very nice trip to plan.

A unique museum in the world
More than 4.500 drawings by Ingres, 44 paintings and his violin as well as his personal collection and documentation.

Here is a summary of an exceptional heritage of the museum of Montauban featuring Ingres. Housed in a listed building in the heart of Montauban, beautiful city from Occitanie in the south-west of France between Toulouse and Bordeaux, the museum houses the legacy of the talented child born in the country : Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres.

Created in the early nineteenth century, the museum reopens after a complete renovation who lasted three years. Next December visitors will discover the total exhibition in a 21st century museum.

A museum enlarged, modernized and…renamed!
The Ingres museum benefits of its renovation to change his name and become the Ingres Bourdelle Museum.

The sculptor Bourdelle who was the pupil of Ingres was the other famous artist from Montauban. All along these periods he is represented by marbles, bronzes, plasters, models and finished works, as well as a beautiful set of graphic works.

Rich in history and exceptional heritage, the city of Montauban pays tribute to his two great artists : Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (1780-1867) and Antoine Bourdelle (1861-1929).

Enlarged, modernised and digitalized, the renovated museum spread over 2700m2 with new exhibition areas, enhanced accessibility , a sumptuous conservatory housing Ingres drawings, an entire floor dedicated to Bourdelles’s work, and magnificent areas to display temporary exhibitions.

A museum known all around the world for its treasures
Due to the preservation of a cultural heritage, the Museum Ingres Bourdelle is known worldwide. Through the loan of artworks, the organisation of exhibitions outside the museum, or the signing of partnerships with the biggest international museums, the french museum MIB exhibits its collection all over the world whether it is in Europe (from Villa Medicis in Rome at the Louvre Museum in Paris, through the galleries of the Palazzo Reale in Milan, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London or the Stadel Museum in Frankfurt), or even in China, in the States and in Canada more recently.

The new Museum Ingres Bourdelle will reopen on the 14th of December and will receive its visitors again at home. A wonderful invitation to travel in the past, art and history. And a cultural event not to be missed !
