Musée Rude

In the transept of the disused church of Saint-Etienne, there is an exhibition of casts of sculpted works by François Rude (1784-1855), one of the masters of the Romantic School who expressed himself in large compositions of a historical nature such as the Departure of the Volunteers, better known as the Marseillaise, of which a monumental cast can be seen here.
