Story 14: Putting your imagination to work
The Franciscan cloister: place of reading and meetingNaiad Plant

In a former place of worship erected in the XNUMXth century by the nuns,
Les Franciscaines is an amazing place dedicated to culture.
It brings together a museum, an auditorium, a performance hall,
exhibition, reading and documentation spaces
structured around themes dear to Deauville:
horse, cinema, spectacle, photography,
the art of living and youth.

With its innovative scenography, this new living space in Deauville invites the visitor to become an actor and to put his "imagination to work". Here, no signposted route, everyone chooses according to their inspirations. Shows, concerts, literary meetings, conferences, major exhibitions, cultural events in connection with the artistic and editorial news of the place are scheduled throughout the year. At the heart of the building, a museum is dedicated to the figurative painter André Hambourg (1909-1999). Thanks to a very dynamic acquisition policy, works by Eugène Boudin, Paul Signac, André Lhôte, Moïse Kissling, Raoul Dufy… have joined the museum's collection. Thus, the temporary exhibitions of the Franciscans reveal to the public the works that have come from them as well as pieces loaned by major national and international museums or even impressionist paintings from the "Painting in Normandy" collection.
