Jean Angladon-Dubrujeaud and his spouse, née
Paulette Martin, who inherited the Doucet collection
in 1968, are at the origin of the Foundation which they
created in their will, prior to passing away in 1979
and 1988, respectively.
The Angladon-Dubrujeaud Foundation came into being on
9 February 1993. The first mission was to create a museum
in the private mansion left by the donors. After several
months of construction work to create the museum and
bring the building to standards, the museum was opened
to the public on 15 November 1996. Madame Anne Marie
Peylhard was chosen as the Curator.
A 15-member board of directors, currently chaired by
Monsieur Gabriel Ourmières manages the assets
left by the founders and the museum operations.
Ex-officio members are: the Minister of the Interior,
represented by the Prefect of Vaucluse, the Minister
of Culture represented by the Drac, Avignon City Hall,
the Fondation de France which acts as Treasurer, and
other members chosen by the founder and the board members
for their capacities.
