Strongly inspired by his early readings at the Lodève library, Dardé finds in Shakespeare and in particular in the play Macbeth, the tragic and heroic charge capable of inspiring his sure and powerful drawings.
The Lodève museum hosts more than 500 drawings on the theme of Macbeth, all made by the artist around 1931. Paul Dardé scrupulously illustrates the text, act by act, scene by scene, and integrates excerpts into his works.
With a selection of the most beautiful drawings, the exhibition allows us to follow the thread of Shakespeare's entire play. Lady Macbeth, a woman transformed by her quest for power, occupies a prominent place. The witches of Macbeth also give rise to tasty drawings, alternately mischievous, creaky or black.
The exhibition is presented in parallel with the "carte blanche" given to Violaine Laveaux for the 60th anniversary of Paul Dardé's death.
Guided tours in French, common to both exhibitions, on Tuesdays and Saturdays at 15:30
