EXHIBITION HOTEL GINKGO

Escale des Z - Jean Noël DUCHEMIN

Made with salvage materials, the iconoclastic works of this sailor "fisherman of tones" compose a kind of libertarian manifesto. " I love using all kinds of recovery materials as supports: both the moulds of ocean-going multihull sailboats and their carbon masts; both the driftwood and the sails of a salvaged tuna boat or my linen shirts".

BRETON DEPARTMENT MUSEUM

& QUIMPER MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS 

The Breton Departmental Museum invites you to a journey of two centuries in the history of this familiar and identity tradition represented by the Breton costume, through a completely renewed presentation.

 

EXHIBITION OF TWO FINISHED PAINTERS

Madeleine FIE-FEUX and Émile SIMON until 20/09/2020 

Madeleine Fié-Feux (1897-1995) and Émile Simon (1980-1976) both lived at the Manoir de Squividan.

Since the enchanting setting of the Squividan manor, Madeleine Fié-Fieux (1897-1995) and her master in painting Émile Simon (1890-1976) travelled for thirty years through Finistère, painting on their canvases the thousand colorful aspects of the landscapes and their inhabitants. A veritable visual testimony of a population among which the wearing of traditional costumes was still widespread, their work forms a remarkable and endearing human report.

Guided tours: Sundays 2,16 and 30 August - 2.30 pm

MUSEE DES BEAUX ARTS QUIMPER

RAOUL DUFY (1877-1953), THE ROARING TWENTIES

Until 07 September 2020

Raoul DUFY (1877-1953) is one of the most important French artists of the 20th century. Painter, draughtsman, ceramist, fabric designer, decorator, he was able, like Gauguin, to abolish the boundaries between major art and minor art. The exhibition at the Quimper Museum of Fine Arts presents about three hundred works from a particular collection.

The paintings and drawings highlight the themes that are dear to Dufy: the sea, the regattas, the music and the festive parties with bright colors.  He collaborated with the famous couturier Paul Poiret and the company Bianchini-Férier, one of the main silk houses in Lyon.

About twenty dresses and sixty fabrics give a glimpse of the boldness and correctness of the finds that have largely fueled the inventiveness of the great couturiers of the Roaring Twenties.
