Additional information

Museum Louis Vouland, Avignon

Here you can discover the exceptional collection of 17th- and 18th-century decorative arts that Louis Vouland (1883-1973), a food industry industrialist, built up over some fifty years for this house where he settled in 1927. Furniture, earthenware, porcelain, tapestries, clocks, chandeliers, mirrors and Chinese objects create the intimate atmosphere of this timeless house museum, where the magic of the 18th-century spirit is at work.

The museum presents a permanent collection of Decorative Arts from the 17th and 18th centuries. It also presents works by 19th and 20th century Provençal artists from the museum's collection, during thematic or monographic exhibitions.

TO COMPLETE YOUR VISIT (included in the Pass)

The museum offers temporary exhibitions that unfold in contemporary rooms and within the collections of decorative arts, where constantly renewed dialogues are formed.

Léon Colombier exhibition

From 2 July to 31 December 2024


"Colombier (and this is his trademark) is the king of contre-jour; the king of fluid, Verlainian skies, but of a Verlaine who would be from the Midi" (Auguste Chabaud).
Yet Léon Colombier is the Parisian of the "new Avignon school". Settled in Roquemaure (Gard), then in Avignon, where he enrolled at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts presented by Paul Saïn in 1894, his taste for landscapes led him to settle in Cavaillon in 1916, from where he turned his attention to the Luberon.
