Summer exhibition:
André Hambourg, Ombre & Lumière

May 20th > September 17th

Every year, the summer exhibition reveals part of the Franciscaines collection, future convivial and cultural place of the City of Deauville. In 2017, for the first time since Deauville received a very significant donation of works made by André Hambourg, the municipality pays tribute to him organizing an exhibition at the Point de Vue. This journey through the works of André Hambourg leads us, at the rhythm of the artist’s journey and life, to several destinations represented by the artist.
