The first impressionist collection of France after Paris.
Boudin, Monet, Renoir, Degas, Sisley, Pissarro, Dufy… in their own light.
The museum of Le Havre was ﬁrst established in 1845. Its original collection was made up by
purchases, State consignments and donations by art lovers from Le Havre.
The historic collection comprises works of art

main schools of painting are represented through the works of Simon Vouet, Ribera,
Ter Brugghen, Janssens, Dughet, Hubert Robert, etc. It was progressively
enriched by the works of art of the 19th century (Courbet, Pissarro, Monet…)

A modern architecture
In 1961, under the guidance of Jean Prouvé, students of Auguste Perret;
Guy Lagneau, Michel Weil, Jean Dimitrijevic and Raymond Audigier built the
Malraux Museum. It is immediately seen as a modern and innovative building. Its
glass and steel proﬁle rises like a ﬁgure-head over the nearby sea. The Seine
Estuary and the light so precious to painters converge to make a scenic
background for the fabulous impressionist collection of the Museum. Due to its
large glass facade, the visitor attention is naturally and subtly drawn back and
forth from the works of art to the landscape and from the landscape to the
works of art.
