Raoul DUFY - estacade de la plage du Havre (1901)

Sa ville natale reste pour Raoul Dufy une source inépuisable d’inspiration tout au long de sa carrière. Les activités portuaires et balnéaires qui ont bercé sa vie fascinent le peintre. Le motif de L’estacade de la plage du Havre est présent dans son œuvre dès 1901 et se répète à de nombreuses reprises.

Charles CORDIER - femme nubienne (1851)

A student of François Rude, Charles Cordier (Cambrai, 1827- Algiers, 1905) occupies a special place in French sculpture of the late 19th century. His 1847 encounter with Seïd Enkess, a former black slave turned model, determined the course of his career and marked the beginnings of his great plan to represent human diversity. His "anthropological and ethnographical gallery" p ...

Edouard DEGAS - lavandieres 'detail) (1870)

Two days following its inauguration by André Malraux, the Musée-maison de la culture du Havre received, on loan from the State by the Order of June 26, 1961, the small painting by Degas Washerwomen, along with four other artworks. A move that demonstrated the French Ministry of Culture's interest in the brand new establishment. The work was unfortunately stolen in 1973, only to reapp ...

Hubert ROBERT - Incendie de Rome (1785)

When Hubert Robert (1733–1808) presented this painting at the Salon de Paris in 1767, it was greeted with enthusiasm by the public and highly praised by Diderot. Not surprising, since the work was both a consolidation of the painter's aesthetic choices and a response to the period's propensity for the "sublime". The fate of Hubert Robert was decided in Rome, where he lived from 175 ...

Claude MONET - soleil d'hiver a Lavacourt (1880)

In September 1878, the Monet family moved to Vétheuil, on the banks of the Seine, around fifty kilometres downstream from Paris. The view from windows on the upper floor of the house looked southwest over a bend in the river. In the winter, the sun set behind the hamlet of Lavacourt, on the opposite shore. From his studio boat moored at the edge of the garden, Claude Monet (1840–1926) ...

Claude MONET - le parlement de Londres (1903)

After a brief trip to London in 1870, Claude Monet (1840–1926) was invited back in 1887 by the painter Whistler. Captivated by the city, he decided to return the following years to paint some of "the effects of fog on the Thames". After four years spent observing the motif, Monet began a major series on the capital city in his Giverny studio. Through constant and simultaneous work ...

Auguste RENOIR - portrait de Nini Lopez (1876)

Nini Lopez first appeared in the work of Auguste Renoir (1841–1919) in La Loge (The Theatre Box), painted in 1874. The young woman from Montmartre, cruelly nicknamed Nini-Gueule-de-Raie, or "fish face", is shown alongside the artist's brother. Although the artwork was immediately purchased by the art dealer "le Père Martin", Renoir, like many of his Impressionist f ...

Auguste RENOIR - excursionniste (1888)

Of all the Impressionists, Auguste Renoir (1841–1919) was the only one who never ceased to paint human figures, and more particularly women. Although The Excursionist from the Marande collection has not been dated, it was likely painted around 1888, when Renoir sought to produce works depicting elegant young women in the costume of the day. The chosen models are shown playing the piano, goss ...

Felix VALLOTTON - la valse (1893)

The Waltz was one of the first Nabi paintings by Swiss artist Félix Vallotton (1865–1925). The Nabi movement, which lasted only a few years (1888–1900), advocated a new spiritual impetus by means of art, combining all forms of artistic expression. This painting depicts ice-skating couples twirling on the former Palais des glaces rink at the Champs-Élysées roundabou ...
