Spoken languages : anglais


This picturesque and intimate museum in the "Villa Way Side", a traditional 1920s house, sets contemporary art alongside works ranging from 1880 to the present day. The "Etaples school" collection displays works by painters fascinated by the local coastline, like Henri Le Sidaner or Eugène Boudin to name but a few; these sit harmoniously alongside more recent and abstract paintings by the likes of Serge Poliakoff and Sonia Delaunay. This ensemble is part of a permanent collection that has been enriched by a range of donations, acquisitions and pieces loaned from collectors. The museum is broadening its scope more and more to encompass contemporary art, through temporary exhibitions and partnerships.
