Émile Bernard. From Van Gogh to Gauguin
From 17 April to 9 May 2015
Born in Lille on the 28th of April 1868, Émile Bernard died in Paris on the 16th of April 1941. He was the first to make Van Gogh and Cézanne known to the public. The modern master also paved the way to Paul Gauguin, and to all modern painting. Then, one of a kind, he chose to paint like Rembrandt, Tintoretto and Titian, like classic masters painted. Hundreds of exhibitions around the world, counting the most recent one in the Musée de l’Orangerie in Paris have proved he was a genius. The Cristel Editeur d’Art Centre in Saint-Malo owed him an exhibition “Émile Bernard. From Van Gogh to Gauguin exhibition”.
