The Fine Arts Museum, which occupies a large part of the Abbey of St. Vaast, has some of the most remarkable collections among the provincial museums: 17th century French and Flemish-Dutch galleries (Champaigne, Lebrun, Vignon, Largillière, Rubens...) and also a unique collection in France outside of the Louvre of large- size 17th century French religious paintings, among which a half dozen Mays from the Cathedral of Notre-Dame in Paris.
The museum also has some of the most beautiful testimonials of the history of Arras: mediaeval sculptures, 18th century porcelains from Arras and Tournai, landscape paintings of the School of Arras (around Corot, Dutilleux, Desavary...) and a unique example of the tapestries which made the reputation of Arras in the 15th century.
