A renovation project from 2023 to 2027

Entrusted to Régis Martin, Chief Architect of Historic Monuments, this project, which will begin in the summer of 2023, concerns the courtyard facades of the three main buildings from the XNUMXth century and more particularly the skylights that adorn their roofs. Made necessary by their state of degradation, their restoration requires the installation of scaffolding in front of each facade in successive phases, which will make it possible to proceed with the cleaning of the masonry and the restoration of the frames, as well as the chimney stacks. Part of the courtyard will therefore be closed to the public, but the museum will remain accessible throughout the duration of the work. An educational presentation of the operation and its evolution will be proposed and updated.

The tapestry of David and Bathsheba on departure

From the end of January, La Tenture de David et Bathsabée, the museum's masterpiece, will be taken down to make way for La Tenture des Valois, on loan from the Uffizi Gallery in Florence for the exhibition on Antoine Caron. The ten tapestries will then remain in storage until the end of the work in the courtyard.
