Housed in a former Augustine monastery, the extensive Musée des Augustins collection brings together paintings and sculptures from the medieval era through the 20th century. Its Gothic interior and 14th-century cloisters form a marvelous backdrop for artworks by French masters such as Ingres, Delacroix, Corot, Courbet and Toulouse-Lautrec himself.
The collection also includes works by other European artists, including Perugino, Crespi, Reni, Rubens and Murillo. Visit the cloisters to admire the medieval garden, and don’t miss sculptures by Rodin or the collection of Romanesque gargoyles.
Musée des Augustins is in the center of Toulouse, around the corner from the Esquirol metro stop.
