The art exhibition covers the entire floor of the museum and is a marvellous display of Gérard Guyomard’s free spirit and joyous rebellion.
Thirty paintings from the 1960s are on show. They take you back to the vibrant sounding 60’s when Jimmy Hendrix, The Rolling Stones and the Beatles topped the charts. The scenes depicted of popular life are close to “Departure on vacation” (1968) and “Halles Rock” (1987).
Gérard Guyomard began painting in 1964 and became inspired by images of everyday life and erotic fantasies. His monumental works include 1985 – Mural in Vittuone, Italy and 1986 – Hospital Lariboisière
His vision is that of his personal world projected on a board.
