The official announcement was made on 1 September 2017. Thanks to the donation of part of Martine and Léon Cligman’s personal collection, the Region announced the opening of a museum of modern art at the Royal Abbey of Fontevraud, which belongs to the State and is protected as a historical monument.

The donation and the museum will make a tremendous contribution to the heritage and culture of Fontevraud. The oldest heritage site for culture, Fontevraud was awarded the CCR (Heritage Site for Culture) label in 1976, is supported by the Ministry of Culture, and is a key landmark known throughout the Pays de la Loire and far beyond.
