The collection begins with large nineteenth-century French academic pictures like Dore's Valley of Tears, to rooms filled with fifteenth-century Flemish paintings, and Italian Renaissance works including examples by Botticelli, Mantegna and Cima da Conegliano. There are also objets d 'art, maiolica ware, ivories, and statuary. Other rooms have paintings by some of the great Dutch masters of the seventeenth century. Beyond the stairway the rooms contain a small collection of French nineteenth-century art: there are a number of Courbets, as well as works by Corot, the Impressionists, Cezanne, Gauguin, Vuillard, and Toulouse-Lautrec. A panelled room at the end of the tour contains eighteenth-century paintings, tapestries, china and a sedan chair.
