Jean Lurçat Contemporary Tapestry Museum

Recommended
A former ward in the old hospital of Saint Jean makes a fine backdrop for Jean Lurçat's ten Chant du Monde tapestries. Created in 1957, they depict the joys and sorrows of human existence and draw upon the experiences of the artist: a monumental project, where perspective is lost and the bigger picture is sought... Other pictures, ceramics and tapestries by the artist, plus works from the Thomas Gleb bequest and woven textiles by Grau-Garriga also on display.
