Travels to Unknown Lands

Boudin, Renoir, Signac… in Cotentin

09.25 — 01.03

Far from the capital and hard of access, the Cotentin peninsula remained distant from the main artistic itineraries in Normandy. Yet, a handful of “avant-garde” artists put up their easels in this region: Morisot, Renoir, Boudin, Signac, Marquet and de Vlaminck. This original approach of making artistic trips to an “unknown land” drew up, in its background, the portrait of a society that was gradually opening out to modernity.
