Description :

Designed to echo the festive season, it has the finest collection of 18th-century Neapolitan Nativity scenes in France. The layout is traditional. Around the Holy Family are numerous little figures representing Neapolitan society and, walking through the group, are the Three Wise Men sumptuously dressed and followed by their cortege dressed in vividly exotic colours. Other Nativity scenes made of terracotta and spun glass from Nevers, wax figures of the Infant Jesus and paintings of the Nativity, including the famous Holy Family from Poussin's studio, round off the collection.
