From June 5th to December 31st 2022 - Marius Breuil, pas à pas

 

+ than 200 Paintings and Drawings

 

This exhibition is developed around the studio collection of Marius Breuil. This artist from Avignon, who was curious about current artistic events, refused to participate in the official world of Fine Arts. A friend of Pierre Grivolas and Paul Saïn, he rejected the idea of belonging to a group and only exhibited his works once, in 1888. Marius Breuil thus asserts his freedom and independence.

His numerous small oil sketches show "sumptuous materials". His energetic touch expresses the mineral, austere and solar character of the Mediterranean nature

around Avignon and in the Alpilles.

No anecdote disturbs the feeling of oblivion and solitude that emanates from his

compositions, arid plateaus punctuated by gnarled trees and limestone rocks.

“The color of my dreams”

Take part in the next Grande lessive® fall 2022

until October 16


The participative art project La Grande Lessive ®   hijacks the “Grandes lessives” of yesteryear, moments of sociability that punctuated the year, in spring and autumn. Created in 2006 by
the artist Joëlle Gonthier, La Grande Lessive® invites you to participate in a collective creation at a time
local and global thanks to digital. The only constraints are the seasonal theme, the format and the weight of the support: “The color of my dreams” on a 21x29.7 cm support (one A4 sheet) light enough to hold stretched out on a wire with two clothespins. It's open to everyone, young and old...

 

The color of your dreams can be drawn, painted, glued, black and white, written, flat or in
relief…, you can bring your material or ask for material at the reception, draw your
inspiration in the atmosphere of the museum of decorative arts, facing objects or works, in the garden or elsewhere, drop off your creations before October 16, and come back to share the moment of collective hanging on October 20 2022 (a video of the drying will be produced, sent to La Grande Lessive ®   for worldwide distribution.

Every day from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. except Mondays and from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. from September 20
