Event - Ker-Xavier Roussel. Private garden, dream garden, exhibition
A dreamlike world.

The exhibition Ker-Xavier Roussel: Private garden, dream garden invites you to discover a hundred works by the painter Ker-Xavier Roussel (1867-1944), from his Nabi experiments of the 1890s to the vast mythological narratives which he revisits with a constant force at the turn of the twentieth century. The exhibition explores the decorative power of the artist as well as taking a look at prints evoking the twilight melancholy of fin-de-siècle symbolism. It will also be an opportunity to gather together many scattered artworks whose format and palette will not fail to surprise.
