Themed visits



Water

Courbet, Bord de mer à Palavas © Musée Fabre / Montpellier Agglomération

Water is one of the four mythical elements, along with fire, air and earth. In the Western World, water symbolises purification and renewal (water baptism). Depicted as elusive, devastating (le Gave débordé) or a source of life, in the 19th century water became the favourite theme of Impressionist painters.
