We wish to heartily thank André Cariou for the wonderful job he has done during the last two years preparing this summer exhibit in Quimper. The major paintings he has gathered will certainly allow visitors to enter the world of YvesTanguy.
The family house in Locronan remains the epicentre of the painter’s imaginary world. One can clearly see his Britton roots and we will provide an insight view of the cultural and artistic events happening in the beginning of the 20th century.
On top of his strong link to Brittany, Yves was proud of being a French American. This family “tradition” is still alive as some of his descendants are dual national. They are so happy to contribute creating a cultural link between France and the USA.
