The Réattu Museum, Museum of Fine Arts

Built at the end of the 15th century, the Grand Priory of the Order of Malta owes its destiny to Jacques Réattu (1760-1833), a painter from Arles and winner of the Grand Prix de Rome. The building became a museum in 1868, and now houses his entire body of work and personal collection.

The museum opened its doors to photography in the 1960s (and now houses 4,000 works), and has been enriched by some exceptional donations (Picasso, with 57 drawings and two paintings, Alechinsky, etc.). It is also keenly aware of the importance of sculpture (Germaine Richier, Toni Grand, etc.), and in 2008 created a listening room dedicated to sound art. A true meeting place, the museum commissions works from artists and mixes disciplines, hosting themed exhibitions and new displays to help you discover art in a different way.

Throughout the year, the Musée Réattu also offers guided tours and workshops for adults, families, children and groups in connection with its exhibitions. This year it is presenting a very fine exhibition of works by Alfred Latour.
