Defining the "best" art galleries in France is a matter of taste; but all the art galleries listed on this page present high quality collections of old masters or modern art. Some of the art galleries listed below are centered round the works of a single artist, others have more general collections; some, like the Louvre, are big, others are relatively small; but all are top quality galleries, and all are worth a visit
