Raoux Room

This room, which was formerly known as the Treasury room, already belonged to the first Musée Fabre and displayed collections of drawings and engravings. Today it holds a collection of paintings by Ranc and Raoux, two painters originally from Montpellier who contributed to the rise of the taste for Rococo in French art at the beginning of the 18th century. Even though mythological subjects continued to inspire artists, it was a spirit full of eroticism mixed with humour which now influenced them.
