Do you really know Jean Moulin? His career, his first act of resistance, his fight and the message he left to France? It is a tribute in pictures to the most famous prefect of Eure-et-Loir which awaits you at the Museum of Fine Arts in Chartres.

Prefect, Resistance fighter, but also artist, relive the highlights of the life of Jean Moulin. Re-discover Jean Moulin through his various works: pictures, paintings, epistolary accounts, historical posters...

And what better place to pay tribute to him than the façade of the Musée des Beaux-Arts, located near his former office in Chartres!

A little history

Classified as a historical monument in 1906, this former episcopal palace has been used as a set for several films. Today it houses a rich collection of ancient and modern art (Zurbaran, Chardin, Vlaminck, Soutine...) and an important Oceanic collection.
