Museum Information

Musée Pierre-de-Luxembourg

Villeneuve-Lez-Avignon | 30

A prestigious heritage

The works that make up the exhibits in the museum bear witness to the glorious past of the cardinal city. They come from the religious establishements of Villeneuve-lès-Avignon notably the Saint André Abbey and the Carthusian Monastery of Valbonne.

An exceptional collection
The museum features two Western medieval masterpieces:

  • the precious Vierge à L’Enfant, sculpted in ivory in around 1310 —a work of stunning grace and delicacy.
  • the retable du Couronnement de la Vierge, painted in 1453-1454 by E. Quarton that represents within one image the theological vision of the organisation of the Christian world.

Paintings from the French and Provençale schools and of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries (from Champaigne, Châlons, Mignard, Levieux) accompany these two exceptional works.

The building  that serves as a backdrop for the collection is a ²cardinal’s residence², an urban palace built in the fourteenth century to house high-ranking Church officials. Completely renovated in the seventeenth century, today the town house is classified, Monument Historique.
