The collections of archaeology, fine arts and art from beyond Europe of the Dobrée museum include numerous sculptures and architectural fragments such as sculpted columns, capitals and pediments.

Made of stone, wood or plaster, these works illustrate the history of sculpture and architecture from the Iron Age to the 20th century.

The Dobrée museum has in its possession a beautiful collection of Gallo-Roman statues and architecture, medieval statues from the chapels and castles of the department and a number of pieces from the Nantes cathedral and other monuments of the city that are now long gone, such as the Notre Dame collegiate. The selection displayed as part of the exhibition shows the richness of these collections, of which an important part has been preserved thanks to the work of the Nantes History and Archaeology Society.
