Musée d'Art Moderne de Troyes

Musée d'Art Moderne de Troyes

14 Place Saint-Pierre - 1000 Troyes - France

Pierre and Denise Lévy established the foundation that lead to the creation of this museum. The museum’s fauvist and expressionist works are complemented by the installation of eighty-one non-European pieces, mainly masks, statuettes, drums and stools. The museum endeavors to show the relationship between these trends in Western art and what was then newly discovered African art. Some of the objects come from the Félix Fénéon and Paul Guillaume sales, most notably a Benin bronze Oba, formerly in the collection of André Derain. The museum allows one to appreciate the delicate lines of a feminine Guro mask from Côte d’Ivoire alongside the Portrait of Jeanne Hébuterne by Modigliani, which it probably influenced.

The MAAOA is an art museum that that attempts to reconcile the aesthetic contemplation of so-called “primitive” works with the dissemination of information of a scientific nature. Created in 1992, it’s holdings are primarily made up from three collections: the gift of Mme. Pierre Guerre and of her daughter Mme. Alain Vidal-Naquet, the collection of Professor Gastaut, and that of the Chambre de Commerce et d’Industrie de Marseille. The Guerre donation consists of eighty-seven African masks and sculptures, many of which have been shown in major international exhibitions. These include Marka masks from Mali, masks of the Guro, Bete, and Baule of Côte d’Ivoire, and of the Punu of Gabon, as well as three Fang reliquaries. A group of ninety sculpted, painted, engraved, or overmodeled skulls and shrunken heads in the Gastaut collection is unique. The permanent loan from the Chambre de Commerce et d’Industrie is for the most part comprised of material from former colonial museums, the last of which closed in 1962. Highlights in this collection include a New Caledonia statue and doorjamb, two masks from Ambrym Island in Vanuatu, Yoruba masks from Nigeria, a Senegales Diola mask, and a Kota reliquary from Gabon. Several recent donations have been made by major collectors such as Jacques Kerchache and Arman.

Housed in a former convent dating back to the 13th century, the Musée Unterlinden displays a remarkable group of paintings and sculptures from the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance. It possesses one of the greatest works of Western art: the Isenheim Altarpiece, executed between 1512 and 1516 by Nicolaus of Haguenau and Grünewald. The museum’s collection of decorative art objects includes silver and gold treasures as well as an exceptional group of hunting and military weapons. Its archaeology section offers a nearly complete overview of the early development of human society, with objects from everyday life (Bergheim mosaic, 3rd century AD) or funerary contexts (gold jewellery from a princely sepulchre). The museum’s modern art collection includes works by major artists, such as Monet, Guillaumin, Bonnard and Delaunay. Although it is especially strong in artists representing movements in abstract art after the Second World War (Magnelli, Poliakoff, Soulages, Bram van Velde, Vieira da Silva), the collection also features figurative works by artists such as Dubuffet and Picasso.

Musée de l'Homme

Inaugurated in June 1938, the Musée de l'Homme presents the evolution of mankind et and of societies, crossing the biological approches and the cultural ones, according to Paul Rivet's thoughts: "Mankind forms an indivisible whole, not only in space but in time too." Located in the Passy aisle of the palace of Chaillot (Paris 16th) in a building erected on the occasion of the Exposition Universelle of 1937, it reopens in 2015, more than 5 years after it had been closed, reaffirming the concept of museum-laboratory that his founder originally wanted it to represent.
