In 2002, Avesta Group worked on the project management following the renovation of Musée des Beaux-Arts d’Angers, France.

 

A Historical Museum

The Musée des Beaux-Arts d’Angers (Angers Museum of Fine Arts) is situated in a mansion near the historic city of Angers. In 1801, the Museum opened its doors under the name of "Museum of the Ecole Centrale", which was inspired on the Louvre Museum located in Paris, France. During the World War II, the Museum was devastated, leading to a whole reorganisation of the rooms and galleries. 

 

The Renovation

The massive renovations happened from 1999 to 2004, under the supervision of two architects – Gabor Mester de Parajd and Antoine Stinco –, whose goal was to harmonise all the existing facilities and to build as well as create entirely new spaces. 

The permanent collections of the Musée des Beaux-Arts d’Angers are separated into two tours. The "Fine Art Tour", that exhibits chronologically different artistic movements from the 14th to the 20th century; this section includes the work of an artist such as Segna di Bonaventura, Jeham Bellegambe and Benvenuto Tisi. The second tour is called "History of Angers" and shows the development of the city through archaeological artefacts, collections of the former Museum of Antiquities and excavations at Angers.
