Exhibition « The Romanesque Illumination » Extended through 2017
Moissac deserves its name « Romanesque Art City ». In the 11th century, when the capitals of the cloister and the tympanum of the church were carved, the monks worked to enrich the Abbey Library. Thanks to replicas you can explore the art of Illumination. This exhibition is realised from 3000 reproductions from the Archives of the Romanesque Art Centre, the originals are kept in the National Library in Paris.
