Litographs from DAUMIER
Till September 22nd 2019
Till September 22nd 2019

 In the context of this year’s European elections, La Maison-Atelier DAUBIGNY is pleased to exhibit a series of lithographs by Daumier, a great friend of Charles François DAUBIGNY.  
These works, on the theme of the formation of EUROPE illustrate, through the attentive and critical gaze of Daumier, that period when some countries were trying to make EUROPE. 
 
Everything starts with the speech of Victor Hugo at the 1849 UNIVERSAL PEACE CONGRESS created under the auspices of the Prince President NAPOLEON III and his friend Richard CODBEN, and we can see how already in the years 1850s-1870s it was very difficult to build a balanced and satisfactory EUROPE for all the Countries. It is impossible not to draw a parallel with what is happening today. 
 
 
This exhibition is made possible thanks to Francis Van Overbecque.

Daubigny exhibitions in Japan in 2018-2019 !
November 2Oth 2018 to November 4th 2019
In 2918 and 2019 five Japanese Museum will show an exhibition fully dedicated to Charles François DAUBIGNY. About 100 works from him will be exhibited. 

This moving exhibition could come to life thanks to several contributors, among the Daubigny's familly who lended the family owned set of 15 etchings featuring the "Journey on the Botin", as well as the Botin small model made in 2007 by Daniel Raskin, descendant of Daubigny. 

=> As a result, you'll have to be patient before you can admire these great pieces again, at the Maison-Atelier de Daubigny.

As a replacement, we are showing other works, and we have an exhibition dedicated to Daumier, close friend of Daubigny, where 32 lithographs about the Europe construction are shown.

Several other people or entities have also contributed to the Japanse exhibition. Among them, the Daubigny Museum in Auvers-sur-Oise, which owns a collectrion of objects from the artist, coming from a donation made by Daniel Raskin's family, direct descendants of Daubigny. This donation has been the main source of the Museum creation, slightly more than 30 years ago. Since then, the Museum has acquired many other pieces.

Last bu not least, the Beaux-arts Museum in Reims, also owning many works from Daubigny, has been a key actor in the setting  of these Japanese exhibitions. Its Chief Director, Ms. Delot, is also directing this moving exhibiton put in place thanks to the Brain trust Inc. company specialized in exhibitions coordination.
