    ma dernière visite m'a plutôt déçue avec une exposition sur de l'art contemporain où les œuvres récentes étaient collées aux tableaux centenaires.... ça et pas de climatisation alors qu'il faisait très chaud: ne faites pas de malaise et ne vous reposer pas sur les banquette où vous vous ferez rappeler à l'ordre... bref, de très belles et inestimables oeuvres réunies par le cardinal Fesh qui valent la visite et le plaisir des yeux!
