The museum "L'Espace Paul Rebeyrolle"

L'Espace Paul Rebeyrolle

 

Open since 1995, "Espace Paul Rebeyrolle", museum and art center, is dedicated to the famous painter born in Eymoutiers (1926-2005). The modern building, whose architect is Olivier Chaslin, was built at the request of the mayor and Eymoutiers town council, with the genrous support of the artist.

More than fifty of his paintings are exposed, Sculptures with outstanding sizes have just come to enhance this collection and occupy the garden of the Espace Paul Rebeyrolle.

Paul Rebeyrolle has become one of the main artist of the 20th Century. His powerful work, sometimes violent, is a call to freedom, a rebellion against injustice, intolerance, enslavement of mankind and nature, a real testimony of our time.

Every year, the Espace Paul Rebeyrolle organises temporary exhibitions that enable visitors to descover unique but always exceptionnal careers. Jean Paul Riopelle, Georges Braque, Michel Macréau, Fernand Léger, César, Jacques Monory, Roel D'Haese, Jean Dubuffet were invited by the museum. Pablo Picasso was exposed in 2008, Marc Chagall in 2009, and Joan Miro in 2010.
