The André Hambourg Museum
The Musée André Hambourg invites you to discover the life and work of this artist who adopted Normandy and more particularly Deauville as a place of inspiration. The inaugural chronological and thematic tour presents 121 works (paintings, drawings, photographs from the Hamburg collection).
Artists from the end of the 19th and 20th centuries are also presented, thanks to exceptional loans of works: Auguste Renoir, Eugène Boudin, André Derain, Eugène Atget, Tsugouharu Foujita, Kees Van Dongen, Albert Marquet and Pablo Picasso. These loans provide a context for the work of André Hambourg in the history of 20th century French art.
The André Hambourg Museum invites visitors to discover the life and work of this artist who adopted Normandy, and more particularly Deauville, as his place of inspiration. The inaugural exhibition, which is both chronological and thematic, presents some one hundred works (paintings, drawings, photographs from the Hambourg collection).
Artists from the end of the 19th and 20th centuries are also presented, thanks to exceptional loans of works: Eugène Boudin, André Derain, Tsugouharu Foujita, Albert Marquet and Pablo Picasso, all of which help to contextualize André Hambourg's work in the history of 20th-century French art.
The André Hambourg Museum is the central space of the Franciscaines and presents the collections that were donated to the City of Deauville by Mrs. Nicole Hambourg in 2011, as well as works from national institutions that have been requested on loan in order to allow the public to enter into the heart of the creation of this prolific painter in the artistic context of the 20th century. With the annual rotation of the collections, visitors will discover the multiple inspirations, artistic periods, countries and themes addressed by André Hambourg.
With a surface area of 271 m², the André Hambourg Museum has two rooms on two levels organized around a central staircase. A space dedicated to the projection of a biographical film made specifically for the place allows the visitor to follow the rhythm of the exhibition. Three seats associated with multimedia terminals complete the tour and invite visitors to deepen their knowledge of the work of André Hambourg, the museum's collections and the works on loan.
The terminals are accessible through two entrances: one is chronological, allowing visitors to associate the life and work of André Hambourg with the artistic and historical environment of the 20th century, and the other is geographical, presenting the many destinations painted by the artist. A large part of the works in the André Hambourg Museum's collection as well as works on loan are presented and commented on.
The discovery of the André Hambourg Museum is accompanied by a rich and diversified program: daily guided tours, workshops for young people, school sessions, mediation programs for families and groups, and invitations to experts and art historians for conferences.
The Museum's intention is to combine the exhibition spaces with a chrono-thematic tour, to optimize the conservation conditions of the works while ensuring that visitors have easy access to knowledge through mediation and scenography, so that they experience a real immersion in the work of André Hambourg and, more broadly, in the artistic context of the 20th century.
