It has mobilized the largest firm in cross ever organized in France before arriving here on the walls of the Museumafter a funny incredible scientific adventure. Presented at the heart of an exhibition cleverly organized in just six months, La Fuite en Egypte, The Flight into Egypt, painted by Nicolas Poussin in 1657, initially surprised by its small size (133 x 97 cm), compared to other works presented (ten Poussin and many works of the seventeenth around this theme, including a superb Philippe de Champaigne).
