French decorative arts collection.

The collections of paintings, engravings, miniatures, sculptures, furniture, ceramics, glassware and jewellery are displayed in the suite of panelled rooms of the Hôtel de Lalande, built in 1779 around a courtyard and garden. This building was designed by the Bordeaux architect Etienne Laclotte, for the Member of Parliament Pierre de Raymond de Lalande. The collections are extremely varied and rich, essentially composed of French decorative arts. The museum focuses particularly on decorative arts from Bordeaux, dating from the 18th and 19th centuries, illustrating the history of Bordeaux in the 18th century.

Art Nouveau is well represented in the Bordeaux Museum of Decorative Arts, with works by Gallé, Majorelle and Daum, whilst Art Deco is represented by the ceramist René Buthaud and painters such as Jean Dupas.

The old stables house an exhibition of 150 pieces illustrating late 20th century and early 21st century styles.
