SILHOUETTES DE DEAUVILLE - OUTDOOR EXHIBITION
by Isabelle Barthel and Simonne L'Hermitte

A PARADE OF PERSONALITIES ON THE BOARDS OF DEAUVILLE
Twenty-six outstanding figures from Deauville parade during the summer of 2019 on the Planches, to share their history along the beach that they have loved and walked. An open-air exhibition, original by two contemporary artists, to reveal Deauville through those who have, in part, woven its legend.
Simonne L'Hermitte and Isabelle Barthel, painters and illustrators, have chosen twenty-six personalities, known or to (re) discover, who loved, created, wrote, painted, played, dreamed and lived memorable moments during their briefs, or frequent stays in Deauville. Two artists, with complementary backgrounds, share and restore twenty-six figures, reproduced in life size on the left side of the bathroom cabin doors, while the right door recreates their relationship to Deauville, through as many original notices written by Philippe Normand .

14 women:
Sophie Troubretzkoï, Gabrielle Chanel, Isadora Duncan, Joséphine Baker, Suzy Solidor, Colette, Rita Hayworth, Françoise Sagan, Anouk Aimée, Anne d'Ornano, Jane Birkin, Diane Barrière-Desseigne, Christiane Head, Sandrine Kiberlain.

12 men:
The Duke of Morny, Eugène Boudin, Guillaume Apollinaire, Vaslav Nijinski, Tsuguharu-Léonard Foujita, Van Dongen, Raoul Dufy, Joseph Kessel, Jean Gabin, Maurice Chevalier, Lucien Barrière, Yves Saint Laurent.
