Salle Raoux

This gallery, formerly known as the Salle du Trésor, formed part of the original Musée Fabre when it was first opened in the late 1820s. The gallery comprises two rooms formerly devoted to prints and drawings. Today, it presents works from the end of the reign of Louis XIV to the Régence, with a particular focus on local history, including three busts of the Deydé family, works by two great portraitists of the period (Rigaud and Largillière), and the Montpellier-born portraitist and genre painter Jean Raoux, who enjoyed a distinguished reputation during the Régence.
