Jean Raoux (1677-1734)

The painter, a contemporary of Antoine Watteau, actively participated in the revival of French painting during the Regency.

9 October 2009 - 2 January 2010

The Musée Fabre pays homage to Pierre Buraglio, one of the most distinctive artists from the group Supports-Surfaces. He claims to be a painter as he positions himself within the history of painting. Yet, he has created his own universe made from the juxtaposition of small sections of canvas, bits of papers; always inexpensive or everyday material which he describes with the expression “the French toast economy”.

Pierrette Bloch

9 July 2009 - 25 September 2009

Celebrated in 2002 in the Centre Pompidou, Pierrette Bloch is now one of the main figures of painting in France. Her work, in the same time discreet through the means and fascinating by its creativeness, is one of the most original of our time. During the last fifty years, Pierrette Bloch enlarged the territory of painting, bringing her steps where no one before her dared to venture. With obstination, she imposed a vocabulary made of ink and matter, where each stain is the germ of a new universe.

This summer the Musée Fabre welcomes the Czech painter Alfons Mucha (1860-1939), one of the most popular Art Nouveau artists. His success in Paris was particularly due to the great Sarah Bernhardt with whom, honour-bound, the exhibition begins; with portraits, costumes and even recordings of her voice.
This exhibition was distinguished with the label of ‘National Interest’ for 2009 by the Ministry of Culture and Communication.

3 April 2009 - 16 May 2009

The Société Générale bank company is a prominent patron of Contemporary art since 1995, when they began to gather a very rich collection. It is now made of more than 170 artworks and offers a large panorama of the plastic creation from the 1970s until nowadays. This collection is very diversified, privileging no style or school. Three main streams have appeared through time: painting, photography and sculpture. This engagement has been reconducted eahc and every year through acquisitions of works by contemporary artists (Bertrand Lavier, Laurent Pariente, Philippe Ramette, Pascal Pinaud…).

Initially, this collection was destined to decorate the workspaces of the collaborators. Following the interest of mainstream audiences for Contemporary art, the Société Générale decided in 2003 to regularly lend some of its works to museums in France and Europe.
