Dramatised audio sketches and testimonies will guide you during your tour. On the edge of the forest you will be plunged straight into an area of large clearings, which gave rise to the characteristic farmland areas bordered by hedgerows and thickets, “le bocage”. Near the Bonvouloir Tower, an archeologist and a historian will offer you a few clues towards understanding this intriguing site. Or you may prefer to be reminded of the legend of Count Hugues de Tessé, recounted by an actor.
At the foot of the Tower, a reconstruction of the landscape will demonstrate what can be seen within a 30 km radius. A bit further, along the hedges, acquaint yourself with the use of wild plants from the bocage. The secrets of other recipes will also be revealed, when you approach the trees. Entertain yourselves in the pear orchard by identifying different varieties of the fruit, and let the sound of the sculptor working this precious wood drift over you.
His social standing enabled him not only contact with all of the renowned figures of the Belle Epoque and the inter-war years, but also the freedom to choose his own models: artists, musicians, people of the world and anonymous figures. It would be unjust, however, to reduce his legacy down to just his portraits, for Blanche was a man who was highly skilled in many areas of painting: scenes of modern life, city panoramas, scenes of everyday life and grand décor.
The exhibition shown from 7 May to 6 September 2015 at the Palais Lumière d'Evian offers a chance to explore works spanning the entire career of the painter. Drawing principally from the large collection of the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Rouen – more than 140 works – to whom the artist made a large donation, this grand retrospective is completed by major artworks from public and private French collections."
So, Open up the doors to your imagination! Welcome to the “Fabulous Castle of Fougères”!
This is the very first exhibition on the Tudors to be held in France. This dynasty ruled over England, Wales and parts of Ireland between 1485 and 1603. The exhibition features portraits which show how they really looked, and which also present skilful images that reflect their ambitions. These powerful portraits allow viewers to discover the Renaissance in England, a key period in the country’s history. The exhibition also presents a unique opportunity to recall the artistic and diplomatic exchanges that took place between France and England throughout the 16th century. At the same time, it allows viewers to examine the Tudors’ subsequent celebrity status, particularly in 19th century France, when artists and playwrights competed to present scenes from their extraordinary lives. This enthusiasm heralded the later success that films about Henry VIII and Elizabeth enjoyed in the 20th century.
