  • A former Dominican convent, the Morlaix museum pays homage to painting and traditional arts and crafts...Discover exhibitions by André Marchand or Jacques Burel.

    The Morlaix museum can be found in a wing of the former Dominican convent. The collection has two main themes, modern and contemporary painting and traditional arts and crafts. These are supplemented from time to time by new hangings displayed in the Dominican room and the ‘maison à Pondalez’. This year, the summer exhibition focuses on the work of André Marchand (1907-1997), a painter from Aix-en-Provence who was greatly inspired by Cezanne. A well-known figure at the Ecole de Paris and at the Maeght gallery, Marchand also earned international recognition, but was more or less forgotten during the 1960s. Another exhibition highlights the work of Jacques Burel, a local artist inspired by his Breton roots, and includes a great number of drawings and paintings on paper made by the artist from the 1930s onwards and throughout his life.
