The collection of Renaissance artworks includes paintings, furniture, art objects, books and precious bindings from the 15th century to the start of the 17th century, divided into two main geographical groups: France and Northern Europe on the one hand, and Italy and the Islamic world on the other.

This set, which mainly comes from the Dutuit collection, is mainly made up of art objects made using various techniques: Hispano-Moorish ceramics, Italian majolica, so-called Venetian glass, Iznik ceramics, French glazed earthenware and so-called Saint-Porchaire pottery, painted enamels from Limoges, tin-glazed pottery and more. Apart from the medals and small Italian bronze pieces, these high-quality works are above all pieces of crockery connected to an “art of fine dining” that shows the wealth, power and artistic tastes of the princes of the Renaissance.

The museum also has a very fine set of clocks, watches and jewels illustrating the precious arts and precise time measurement techniques of Europe and the Renaissance.
