André Hambourg

Painter and humanist draftsman (1909-1999 )
The City of Deauville pays tribute to the life and work of André Hambourg and unveils a preview of the book written by Nicole Hambourg, the painter's wife: "André Hambourg, ses histoires de toiles...". The book explores the intimate life of this humanist and invites us to get closer to the creative process of the artist, a native of Normandy who set up his easel on the boards and made Deauville one of his favorite ports of call in the 1950s. This day is a tribute to the exceptional donation of 539 paintings, made in 2011 to the City of Deauville by Nicole Hambourg. Since then, this collection has continued to grow with the donation of numerous drawings (3155 inventoried today) and 657 works from the artist's personal collection, thus enabling the creation of the André Hambourg Museum.

The construction site of Les Franciscaines & the stained glass windows of the chapel in pictures
The stained glass windows of the chapel - registered in the general inventory of the heritage - have just been restored and put back. They give back a powerful light in this place where the shows will be played. The damaged glasses were repaired and all the compositions were carefully cleaned. With a life span of about 100 years, the lead frames have been renewed. The stained glass windows were made around 1890 and offered to the congregation by an anonymous benefactor. They were all made in the workshop of the Duhamel-Marette painters and glassmakers of Evreux. Their iconography is based on episodes from the life of Saint Francis of Assisi, whose rules are respected by Les Franciscaines sisters. The monumental stained glass window, previously installed in the choir of the chapel and representing Saint Francis of Assisi marrying Lady Poverty, was returned to Les Franciscaines sisters and installed in the chapel of their new establishment next to the convent.

When Les Franciscaines Sisters open in June 2020, a light show will enhance these glass pieces so that they can be easily viewed.
