It presents, among other things, a rich funerary statuary and a series of alabaster statues representing weeping figures, Les Pleurants (15C), by Jean de Cambrai and found in the Duc de Berry's tomb. Also a few canvases by Jean Boucher (1575-1633), a painter in the Classic style who is renowned in Bourges.
