Bonnard, Renoir, Vuillard...

Masterpieces from the Arkas Collection
From Corot to Kisling, the selection made by the Musée de Lodève illustrates the key movements that highlight, in the history of art, the beginnings of the Modern period: Barbizon, Impressionism, Neo-impressionism, Pont-Aven, Nabis and Fauvism. Build around four thematic sections (portraits, nudes, landscapes and genre scenes), the exhibition offers an original set of works from artists who, at the turn of the last century, pave the way to avant-gardes. The collection Initially focused on Turkish painting, the Arkas Collection has focused since 2005 on European painting of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It now has more than a thousand pieces. Lucien Arkas comes from an ancient family of Marseilles, having moved to Izmir for 300 years. It is therefore natural for him to work with France for the first exhibition abroad of his collection. He has agreed on emptying the walls of his house to make this exceptional at the Musée de Lodève happen.
