Bonjour, Monsieur Gauguin. Czech artists in Brittany 1850 - 1950

Brittany has always attracted artists, and thanks to the local school of Pont-Aven, it became a major center of modern art, which was attended by many of the most progressive artists of its time. Artists of Czech origin also regularly came to this French region.

Exhibition"Bonjour, Monsieur Gauguin" tells in detail about the work of Czech artists in Brittany for a hundred years, from 1850 to 1950. Viewers can appreciate the way they portrayed the harsh landscape of the province or its traditional motifs, as well as the influence of the Pont-Aven school on their work.

The works of Czech artists are presented in conjunction with the paintings of the French - Paul Gauguin, Paul Serusier and Emile Bernard.
