The sculptures are impressive but so it the building they are housed in, the presentation is excellent, with concept sketches and slip castings, stone and bronzes so you follow the whole process. TIP: 4 Euros or for just Euro 15 you can buy a ticket...More

This is one of those Art Galleries not to be missed. Easily overlooked but it's dedicated to a great sculptor of many works that we are familiar with not only in Europe but worldwide during a great period of history.

The museum was full of the works of just one sculptor, David of Angers, and his work was amazing. From huge statues to busts, medallions and drawings it was all wonderful, and in such a lovely setting of an old church with its roof replaced...More

I'd never heard of David dAngers so to visit the exhibition was a revelation; the man was prolific, extremely talented and the setting for the work on display here is just superb.

In the centre of Angers is this gallery in an old abbey showing some of the casts David d'Angers made for his large commissions. They are amazing. You can also see some of his medallions and drawings.
