The mysterious forest of Eva Jospin

Artists have been fascinated by both trees and wood. And sometimes even, by distant derivatives, like cardboard. This is the meaning of the meticulous work carried out by Eva Jospin, a contemporary artist recognized for her industrial cardboard sculptures, drawing her influence from Land Art. A material within everyone's reach, practical and functional that she folds, cuts, digs, glues and tears to transform it into real forests. For'exhibition "You are a tree!" installed to the Franciscans until June 5, Eva Jospin is setting up her own 2m tall coppice in the courtyard of the exhibitions. A symbolic theme for the artist who considers that "trees cross the cultures of humans on Earth. It is he who connected humans and who allowed discoveries, conquests". With this fragment of forest made up of trees cut in relief and embedded, she succeeds in creating a phantasmagoric magic.

Nadia Leger has made many portraits throughout her career: political figures, friends, members of her family, men and women of the people, which she has declined in many media. She also often chooses herself as a model. In this self-portrait made at the age of 49, she presents herself as a determined and confident woman. Like the synthesis of her triple commitment to love, art and politics, this work brings together in a single image the diversity of the aesthetic currents that forged it, from the abstraction of the European avant-gardes to Soviet social realism. It is literally traversed by these form-signs.

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION "NADIA AND FERNAND LEGER"

He is Norman, she Belarusian. He celebrates the workers, the Normandy countryside and the liveliness of the beaches in an art that is sometimes impressionist, sometimes cubist. In the Gallery of the Masters of the Franciscans, Nadia and Fernand Leger exhibit themselves through a dozen of their greatest works.

The work The woman with the pineapple is one of the first portraits painted by André Hamburg (1909-1999). Although the model's name is not mentioned in the title, it is Micheline de la Piedra, a very close friend of the painter. André Hamburg represents her without artifice, in an elegant outfit typical of the 1930s, gloved, short hair styled boyishly and covered with a green scarf. Her pose, relaxed, slightly leaning against the wall, contrasts with her intense gaze staring at the viewer. Concerned about the details and the realism of his paintings, André Hamburg goes so far as to represent the mustache adorning the lips of his model. In the foreground, the eye is drawn to the only warm color in the painting: a pineapple, placed on a plate on the table, a surprising touch left by the artist.

The latest novel by Agnès Desarthe

He is one of six finalists selected for the Books & Music Prize 2022. Since its publication on August 19, L’Eternel Fiancé (Ed. de l'Olivier, 2021) has been shortlisted for the Prix Goncourt and the Prix Goncourt des lycéens 2021. Its novelist, Agnes Desarthe, explores the vagaries of life and especially of love. The two protagonists, Etienne and a narrator, whose name we will never know, meet at the age of four, during a Christmas concert. This first meeting announces a whole series of them: the little girl will grow, mature, age, and she will meet again regularly, unexpectedly, the boy who never recognizes her. major work, The Eternal Betrothed confirms the exceptional talent of Agnès Desarthe: that of an author who has sworn to amaze us - and worry us - by offering our eyes a world in perpetual disagreement.

For almost twenty years, the Books & Music Festival, unique in the French cultural landscape, strives to mix and untangle the links that unite literature and music. Now installed to the Franciscans, it honors writers inspired by music. True to its foundations, the festival, led by dozens of authors, novelists and musicians, continues its exploration by favoring sharing, openness, discovery and high standards.

The String Quintet, Anton Bruckner

Huge Austrian symphonist, Anton Bruckner (1824-1896) confided his moods only once to chamber music, and it was a daring, serious and poignant masterpiece. At the request of the violinist Hellmesberger, he wrote in 1878 his string quintet for two violas in F major which has four movements: a gemässigt, for an joke, for an adagio and a fabulous final… lasting 43 minutes! On the front of the stage, the violists Lise Berthaud et Paul Zientara enchant the audience in the company of the violinists Pierre Fouchenneret et Vasily Chmykov, cellist Victor Julien-Lafferriere and the pianist Theo Fouchenneret. Highlighting the immense quintet, two other classical and romantic masterpieces are brilliantly performed: the Quartet for piano and strings K. 478 of Mozart and the Sonata for Violin and Piano No. 1 Op. 105 of Schuman.

Since 1996, the Easter Festival welcomes young chamber musicians to Deauville to play rare and ambitious programs, from trio to orchestra, from baroque music to the great pages of modern music, combining voice, strings, winds, brass, percussion and keyboards. Every spring, The music workshop associates the most promising chamber musicians, most of them in residence at the Singer-Polignac Foundation, with a tailor-made program by the director Yves Petit from Voize. And it is from an exceptional place, the Élie de Brignac room – with absolutely ideal wood-panelled acoustics – that the concerts take place.

The Water Lilies saga is one of modern art's most extraordinary adventures. Claude Monet (1840-1926), a pioneer of the Impressionist movement, moved to Giverny in 1883 and decided to create a majestic garden there, far from the bustle of the city. A tableau vivant that he fashions himself with weeping willows, oriental plants, a Japanese bridge and, among other things, a water lily pond. From this inspiration is born the Water Lilies floral series, composed of nearly 250 tables and divided into three parts: Waterlily ponds (1899-1900), The Water Lilies, series of water landscapes (-1903 1908) and The Japanese Bridge (1918-1924).

The nymphs, exposed to André Malraux Museum of Modern Art (MuMa) in Le Havre, are part of forty-eight paintings by Waterlilies, series of waterscapes. Bathed in dark emerald green, this square canvas reduces the landscape to an expanse of water, dotted with water lilies. The disappearance of the sky has the effect of restricting perspective. Five years after presenting his painting at Durant-Ruel, Claude Monet began the famous panels now displayed on the curved walls of the Orangerie in Paris.

Eugène Boudin's beach scenes

Famous for its representations of the Normandy coasts, Eugène Boudin stays every summer in Deauville and Trouville-sur-Mer from 1864. Places of new society life, the beaches of the Côte Fleurie are more and more frequented in summer with the birth of sea bathing. de mœurs", this fascination of capturing the atmosphere of everyday life, taken from life and ideal for capturing the natural light of the seaside. His paintings of beaches are regularly composed in this way; the sky occupies an important part of the painting, while the lower part is reserved for the figures, with women in crinolines or carrying a parasol accompanied by dandies on vacation.
