Following the Orientalismes exhibition, and with the aim to provide a thematic experience to their audience, the Musée des Beaux-Arts of Bordeaux (Museum of Fine Arts) has now focussed around the intimate relationship between the city of Bordeaux and the Italian peninsula, for an exciting visit worth the detour. Founded in 1801, the Musée des Beaux Arts of Bordeaux has survived the political turmoil of 19th and 20th century France. Today it has become a reference in European fine arts from the 15th up to the end of the 20th century
