  • Le Faouët Museum offers more than 400 works of art, exhibited in rotation.

    Le Faouët Museum was opened in 1987 in what had been a 17th-century Ursuline convent. Its aim is to restore the cultural excitement of the town’s past. The fact is that from the middle of the 19th century onwards, the wealth of heritage and traditions of Le Faouët attracted many French and foreign artists to inland Brittany. The museum’s collection, made up of paintings, drawings, engravings and sculptures, includes more than 400 works of art. The museum regularly adds to its collections and presents them in rotation when temporary exhibitions are taking place. From March 30th to June 9th, 2013, there will be a retrospective of the work of Henry d’Estienne (1872-1949). Official artist for the Minister of the Colonies, his career as an Orientalist was paralleled by regular work in Brittany, in which he shows a deep understanding of regional traditions. Next, the museum will then hold an unusual exhibition on the theme 'Women Painters in Brittany' (1850-1950), from June 29th to October 13th, 2013, bringing together nearly 150 works by female avant-garde painters, today fully recognised for their artistic talent.
