More information

“Emotion and light at a museum” The neo-Gothic chapel inside the Palace of the Bishops holds around 50 paintings of René Margotton.
The five bay windows (more than 120 m2) illuminating the choir, were decorated with new stained glass crafted by the Master himself.
One of the last cubists, Margotton conceived his work according to the rigorous laws of composition using an almost architectural foundation of solidly constructed volumes. Nevertheless his work is full of powerful expression and vibrant color.
