PERMANENT AND TEMPORARY EXHIBITIONS

A UNIQUE PRESENTATION OF THE WORKS OF ANDRE HAMBOURG

Starting point for reflection on the Franciscans, the donation to the City by his wife of 536 canvases painted by André Hambourg between 1925 and 1999. The painter of the navy, lithographer and draftsman developed a figurative art which found source of inspiration on the Côte Fleurie. A donation supplemented by around forty works collected by her husband or exchanged with other artists (Marie Laurencin, Foujita, Van Dongen, Derain…). In the museum space which will be exclusively dedicated to the painter, a rotation of the works is planned in order to show the public the largest possible part of the paintings present in the collection. The profusion of drawings makes it possible to envisage a permanent space entirely devoted to their development. Different themes will place the evolution of André Hamburg's painting in the broader context of art history of the period by comparing his artistic productions to those of other artists.

A PLACE OF DESTINATION

The equipment will also be part of a dynamic of exchange of temporary exhibitions with other museums and institutions, whether the latter are of Fine Arts,
History and Archeology or Science and techniques, French and foreign, in order to multiply and diversify the exhibition offer to the public.

To remain a place that is always attractive and teeming, a place of destination, the Franciscan program ripples or varies according to cycles of renewal, regenerating
over long or shorter periods. A trait that will characterize the place and seduce regular or occasional audiences. Each year, temporary exhibitions - including a large one in high season -, conferences, concerts ... punctuate the calendar.
