local/cache-vignettes/L227xH290/Le_Gall-874e8.jpg16/2/10 – Appointment – Cherbourg, Musée Thomas-Henry – A young curator and recent graduate of the Institut National du Patrimoine, Louise Le Gall has just been named as director of the Musée de Cherbourg. At the same time, she will act as head of the other municipal museums since the city is also home to the Museum Emmanuel Liais (natural history and ethnography) as well as the Musée de la Libération. Louise Le Gall, 29, graduated from the INP in 2009 and is a 19th century specialist. She took over her new post in January, succeeding Cécile Binet. The Musée Thomas-Henry has very important collections of old masters and 19th century paintings (notably a beautiful series by Jean-François Millet). The museum is part of a cultural center, covering two floors and housed in a recent building with a particularly unpleasant architecture.
