Exhibition from the 16th May to the 4th September 2018
Eugénie Alméras was born in 1988. From 2009 to 2014, she studied at the Beaux-Arts School in Paris where she graduated in 2014, after a year at the University of Fine Arts in Hamburg. She was the second artist invited to the museum, and painted in the office-workshop overlooking the winter garden between September 2017 and May 2018. Her works are shown next to Jean-Jacques Henner’s in the various rooms of the museum, creating true resonances between their two worlds.
The resonance takes all its meaning in the drawing room, which allows you to compare the preparatory works of Eugenie Alméras (drawings, photographs, Photoshop montages...) and drawings by Jean-Jacques Henner that she selected in the reserves of the museum.
