Beaux Arts Special Edition / From the Douanier Rousseau to Séraphine - The Great Naïve Masters
Following in the footsteps of Henri Rousseau and Séraphine Louis, the exhibition aims to bring out of oblivion a constellation of artists such as André Bauchant, Camille Bombois, Ferdinand Desnos, Jean Ève, René Rimbert, Dominique Peyronnet and Louis Vivin.
Self-taught, like the Douanier Rousseau who preceded them and, sometimes, inspired them, they came to art in secret or late, driven by an opposed vocation, a divine injunction or the events of History. Out of necessity, they have reconciled their artistic practice with an often modest profession: roadmender, domestic worker, fair fighter, printer or post office worker. Their works would never have come out of the bourgeois salons of Senlis or the stalls of the Montmartre Crust Fair if a few personalities had not looked at them, including the founder of the Maillol Museum, Dina Vierny.
