The exceptional collection of modern paintings bequeathed by Emile Loiseau and enriched by means of regular purchases brings together the works of some of the great names from the School of Paris (1910-1925), including Vlaminck, Dufy, Derain and Chagall.

Jules-Emile Zingg, Marine à la Clarté, début XXe siècle. Henri Epstein, La place, 1ère moitié du XXe siècle. Jules-Emile Zingg, Élégantes à la plage, début XXe siècle.

This legacy, which comprises works of contemporary painting, was collected by Emile Loiseau, an enlightened art lover. It comprises over sixty works by approximately thirty artists.
