Tribute to André Hamburg

A few months before the opening of the André Hamburg Museum in June 2020 in the heart of the Franciscans, the City of Deauville paid tribute to the life and work of the artist.

The White Chira

Sunday, December 1, the City of Deauville dedicated the day to André Hambourg, starting with a three-part conversation with Lydia Harambourg (historian, art critic and writer, specialist in XNUMXth and XNUMXth century painting), Lynda Frenois ( director of the Musée des Franciscaines) and Cécile Le Brenne (conservation assistant and collections manager). and previewed the work written by Nicole Hamburg, wife of the painter, entitled André Hambourg, his canvas stories… The book covers the intimate life of this humanist and invites us to get as close as possible to the creative process of the artist, Norman by adoption who installed his easel on the boards and made Deauville one of its privileged home ports in from the 50s. This day is a tribute to the exceptional donation of 539 paintings, made in 2011 by Nicole Hambourg to the City of Deauville, composed of 539 paintings. 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 André Hamburg Museum to be created.

 

 

 

This work, presented in preview, is a great meeting with an artist whose intense creativity takes us through the XNUMXth century. Each canvas is a reflection of a moment in the life of the painter, of a story steeped in history.
Official painter of the Navy, André Hambourg traveled around the world while being portrayed as a man faithful to Normandy, adopted region which inspired hundreds of paintings, and especially Deauville where he installed his easel in front of the beach cabin n ° 181.
André Hambourg's "Canvas Stories" also show us the importance of his meetings with people whose faces are sometimes immortalized in his paintings. This humanist artist has always been close and inspired by all the people he meets, throughout his life. We constantly feel the sympathy of the painter who leaves in the memory of those who knew him the image of a cordial and warm man. His many friends, described in these pages, also testify to the friendly loyalty he has shown throughout his existence.
