The Musée du Petit Palais, in Avignon, invites you to come discover its fabulous collections, originating from Gian Pietro Campana. More than three hundred painted and sculpted works take you on an exceptional journey through the heart of the artistic creation of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Alongside Botticelli, Carpaccio, Giovanni di Paolo...
When the Musée du Petit Palais opened in 1976, the collections that were there came from two origins : an endowment from the Louvre and one from the Calvet Foundation in Avignon.
Those from the Louvre were composed of three hundred 14th and 15th century Italian panels coming from the Campana collection.
The collection of sculptures came from donations, purchases and items stored by the city during works, donations from the Calvet Foundation and from excavations around the Petit Palais. It is today exhibited in the five halls of the museum of the Petit Palais, open to the public since 1979.
