The "Jacques-Émile Blanche" exhibition continues on the Planches de Deauville where the doors of the bathroom stalls are adorned with portraits from the Franciscan collections, whether painted, photographic, caricatural or literary.
A diversity of approaches which makes it possible to question the nature of this representation, at a time when the practice of "selfie" has become widespread. What should a portrait show? Is it the singularity of a face, or a silhouette? Should it be the memory of a good time? Or should he show the inner forum of the person he represents?
The response of the caricaturist, photographer or painter is obviously different.

“Jacques-Émile Blanche” and “Faces à la mer”, every day (duration 1h30): Wednesdays and Saturdays at 17 pm; Thursdays and Fridays at 11 am; Sundays at 15 p.m.
