Sabbatical art pilgrimage: Musee Maurice Denis

Yesterday I also visited the Musee Maurice Denis, a museum dedicated to the work of Denis, the Symbolists and Nabis artists and their time. Once the home of the painter, the museum was opened to the public in 1980. Since then the collection has been further enriched and helps to form an understanding of the origins of modern art. Denis restored and decorated a chapel in the building which can also be seen and which represents a bringing together of his work with the Ateliers d'Arte Sacre. See
