Event about Yves Brayer
EN ECHO - MUSEE YVES BRAYER - Les Baux-de-Provence
April 8th > November 12th 2023
THE CONTEMPORARY SHOW
WITHIN PERMANENT COLLECTION
The year 2023 follows the season which has seen the completion of the four
years of embellishment of the Museum and the very first exhibition of
contemporary art within its permanent collection. This year again, following its
success, the Museum welcomes a new selection of artists alongside the works
of Yves Brayer.
The artist's work resonates like an echo of Time and of the view of the World
around them. The question raised by the new presentation of works of
contemporary art among the collections of the Yves Brayer Museum in Baux-de-
Provence, gives the title to the exhibition EN ECHO / ECHOING.
Nature and everyday life are inexhaustible sources of inspiration for artists.
Each in their own way captures the themes that witness our times through a
singular expression. The confrontation with the painting of Yves Brayer is done
through and thanks to various media. The contemporary show has for reference
the work of the in house artist of which the themes approached rebound like an
echo. The natural world, the human figure, the human activity spaces, attract the
curiosity of artists working in design, calligraphy, drawing, and painting; they tell
us about travels, plants and the passage of time.
Echoing the complex and rich world that is ours - that is the input out of which
the invited artists invest the premises of Yves Brayer Museum: Françoise Plée,
Yoshiko Yoshida, Gabriela Irigoyen, Emma Bougaeff, and Mark Beard.

ROBERT DOISNEAU - Le Temps Retrouvé
May 8th > November 12th 2023
Born in Gentilly in 1912, died in Montrouge in 1994, Robert Doisneau is part of humanist photography of the 20th century.
He began photography in 1929 and joined André Vigneau's studio in 1931, which enabled him to publish his first reports.
After the war, he regularly published in newspapers such as: Life, Point-de-Vue, Regards or Picture Post.
Kodak Prize in 1947, Niepce Prize in 1956, he was invited to participate in important international exhibitions.
An observer of Parisian life and its suburbs, his work, testimony to a bygone era, is imbued with nostalgia, humor, irony and tenderness.
He remains one of the most famous photographers of this century.
A tireless worker, he will have succeeded in tearing a work of photographer out of a schedule overloaded with industrial or advertising orders that make him live.
The Yves Brayer Museum presents an anthology of 50 iconic images of passers-by, strangers and celebrities which allows the visitor to understand this endearing work.
"The world I was trying to show was a world where I would have felt good, where people would be kind, where I would find the tenderness that I wish to receive. My photos were like proof that this world can exist." (Interview with Frank Horvat in Entre Vues, 1990)
