The Fine Arts Museum of Nantes (French: Musée des beaux-arts de Nantes) is an art museum in Nantes, France.
The museum was created in 1801 with the purchase of the Cacault collection and was located in is actual Palais des Beaux-Arts since 1900. The museum holds several paintings that were looted by the French during the French revolution (so-called 'saisies révolutionnaires') and were never returned to their lawful owners such as the The Triumph of Judas Maccabaeus by Peter Paul Rubens.
In 2009, the architect Stanton Williams won an international competition to transform the museum with a modern extension to become the Grand Musée d’Art. This is due for completion in 2013.
Artworks in the collection include paintings from the 13th century to modern art by painter such as:
