Museums and libraries possess artistic objects and literary objects which are going to have the same function of communication, enter the main subject composing the museum (folk, ethnological, etc.) and the public.The museums of the Fine arts in "province", established thanks to the sendings of the State but also the donations and the legacy of the local or regional artists, develop documentation centers or libraries to have the necessary information to share them to their public and so show that Paris is not the only city in France to emphasize art.
