Calais' Fine Arts Museum

Interesting
The museum presents works executed by Rodin in connection with The Burghers of Calais monument, including 24 models - plaster, terracotta and bronze - illustrating the artist's preparatory work. Nearby is a 1:10 scale model of Anthony Caro's Chapel of Light, the original of which is installed in the church in Bourbourg. Then the visitor comes to a juxtaposition of paintings and sculptures from the 16C-20C, exploring accessible and changing themes.
