An Artist and an Architect: the Espace Rebeyrolle at Eymoutiers
Abstract:It is rare that an architect and an artist are able to come together to design a museum that will enshrine the artist’s works for posterity. More than a simple showcase, the museum thus becomes an extension of the artist’s genius as reflected in the architect’s own vision and talent. Such a partnership resulted in the creation of a unique setting for the paintings of Paul Rebeyrolle, one of the most prominent living French artists, in his home town in central France. Mathilde Bellaigue is responsible for scientific appreciation at the Laboratoire de Recherche des Musées de France and is editor-in-chief of the periodical Techne.
