Wow, what great pieces of sculpture! Rude was the person who carved the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. Well worth visiting.

The Francois Rude sculptures are massive, detailed classics. I wandered into to the old church not knowing what was inside. Incredible sculptures including Napoleon and a massive version of his Arc de Triomphe masterpiece. Further inside are some impressive unrestored interior and foundations of the original church.

As I walked in through the entrance I was stunned by the massive sculpture on the facing wall of what was once a church. This museum is truly a surprise and is well worth the few minutes walk from the musee des beaux arts just up the road. Sculptures of Napoleon and Marshall Ney dominate the side of the two room gallery and the detail is amazing. Really worth a visit and it wont take much time to appreiciate the work of Francois and Sophie Rude.

I am not a connoisseur of sculpture, but it was interesting to look at some oeuvres of this sculptor. Personally, I liked the statue of some italian boy, playing with a turtle.
The museum is rather small, it hardly takes half a hour to look at all the sculptures.
I enjoyed the part of the museum that overlooks the sanctuary of the former church (the building is now occupied by the museum and a library). It is good to know that the sanctuary of this ancient church is not used for any other purposes.
