The museum in Lisle-sur-Tarn bears the name of its most famous native sons, the designer and engraver Raymond LAFAGE whose work it celebrates. Here one can admire the work of the artist and discover the various engraving techniques both hollow and intaglio.
Created in 1890 through the sage supervision of locals Achille Gaillac and Jules Rigaud, the wealth of the Raymond Lafage Museum is equally made up of:
- archaeological pieces from paleolithic to the sixteenth century, thanks to fundraising carried out by the museum’s founders,
- a collection of glass pieces called “Grésigne” : the forest of Grésigne next to the commune of Lisle-sur-Tarn was a glass production area under the old regime. The glass collection held by the museum highlights the green and blue green pieces made during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
- Works by local painters and sculptures such as G. Pech, H. Loubat, E. Debat-Ponsan, J.P. Laurens and most notably the portraits done by Victor Maziès (1836-1895).
