Musée de l’Image
Ancient and contemporary art
In Épinal, the tradition of images dates back to the 18th century and reached a pinnacle during the 19th. So it was only natural to devote a museum to them. The Musée de l’Image houses a rich collection of more than 100,000 popular images printed in France and abroad between the 17th and 21st centuries. The ancient and contemporary pieces seem to answer one another, giving visitors an original perspective on our modern-day society. The museum also shows pieces by contemporary artists as well as temporary exhibitions.
