Over: Exhibition: Van Gogh and Daubigny
Extended till end of April 2024
In 2023 we left our series of Daumier's lithographs exhibitions, and we presented an exhibition in line with this year's cultural season theme at Auvers at this time: "The 70 days of Vincent in Auvers".
This exhibition is extended till end of April.

We started from the main element which linked Vincent Van Gogh to the Daubigny's family, I mean a painting Vincent was naming as "One of my most desired canvas". I'm talking about "Le Jardin de Daubigny", that Vincent wanted to give to Charles François Daubigny's widow. This is the garden of Daubigny's house, close to the station, where Marie Sophie was living.

This exhibition is not only a matter of showing a print of this painting, and the corresponding letters. It shows how Vincent was mentioning Daubigny in his extensive correspondence he mainly had with his brother, Theo, and with his friends. We are exhibiting works from Daubigny Vincent talked about, as well as quotations from Van Gogh related to Daubigny and we are telling few anectotes taken out of the family's circle for the occasion.

Exhibition : From studios to landscapes
from May to end of October
In line with this year's cultural season theme at Auvers: "The 150 years of Impressionism"  we are delighted to present an exhibition showing the evolution of the artists' studios.

It shows the evolution of these places of artistic creation, from in studio to the outdoors, through documents related to Charles François Daubigny, his friends and other artists. Lithographs by Daumier, a famous caricaturist and very close friend of Daubigny and Corot, add a humorous touch to this exhibition.

Charles François Daubigny was fervently devoted to outdoor painting; he enjoyed painting en plein air in order to depict landscapes directly on the final canvas or wood plates.

He invented the boat-studio, a very effective way to position himself at key locations and capture nature from various angles. Thanks to a cabin, he was able to leave his studio and paint en plein air for several days at a time. 

Several years later, Monet took up the idea, but did not navigate as much.

Works exhibition from Strait and Patrick Valmier
June 3rd and 4th '23
During the two days of Meet in the Gardens international event, and maybe later on for the Open Gardens event, come and visit Daubigny's Garden and discover works from Strait adnd Patrick Valmier, local artists

Présentation of Strait: (Source: 
Strait was born in 1972 in L'Isle Adam. From his childhood, his passion for drawing awakened, naturally leading him to study applied arts at the prestigious Auguste Renoir high school in Paris. Subsequently, he embarked on higher studies as a visual artist of the architectural environment at the Duperré school. 
At the end of the 1980s, he immersed himself in the graffiti movement and adopted the pseudonym “STRAIT”. His commitment to street art fuels his graphic design and his preference for large formats. As a theater designer for Club Med, he honed his artistic skills across the world, from Turkey to Israel to Cuba. 
In 1997, wanting to strengthen his creative freedom, he founded his own clothing brand. At the same time, his passion for music led him to explore percussion, whose rhythmic energy inspires his paintings. 
Inspired by his travels, Strait now merges figurative and abstract art, blending classical techniques and urban materials. He transposes his art onto various media across the globe, creating ephemeral works in chalk on different rocks. In 2009, this artistic exploration gave birth to an innovative concept, “Strait on the Rock”, accompanied by a first work. 
Today, Strait shines in multiple exhibitions, performances and artistic events, constantly refining his style through the universal language of movement, color and energy.

Presentation of Patrick Valmier: (Source:

Born in Ecouen in 1953, Patrick Valmier grew up in an ever-changing environment, in a rural suburb close to Paris that gradually suffered the ravages of increasing urbanization. 
A lover of nature and color, it was in Pont Aven - in contact with the artist Alexandre Minguet - that he decided to pick up his brushes for good. He improved his technique with an Écouen painter: Jean-Claude Vertongen, a friend he admired. At this time, he was looking for pure colors, inspired by the masters of Auvers and searching for his own style. 
Self-taught and a collector in his spare time, his love of painting was an intense passion. As he progressed, he began to have doubts and gradually abandoned painting: although he found pleasure in it, he was unable to express himself with a style all his own. Faced with the pain of the recent loss of his mother, he took up painting again, at first as an outlet to finally reconnect with pure colors. In this way, he expresses and consoles himself.
