Buraglio à l’épreuve de Balzac

Carte blanche

From April 13th, 2022 to September 4th, 2022

From April 13 to September 4, 2022, the Maison de Balzac presents « Buraglio à l'épreuve de Balzac », a carte blanche by the artist nicknamed the "painter without a brush". This exhibition of original and pre-existing works retraces the many inspirations of the writings and the character of Balzac, implicit in the creation of Pierre Buraglio.

 

If the depth of Balzac's work was not always fully perceived during his lifetime, it seems to be better understood by the artists who, since the beginning of the 20th century, search and find in La Comédie humaine ideas they can exploit in their own way.

 

After Louise Bourgeois, Alkis Boutlis or Eduardo Arroyo, the Maison de Balzac continues the dialogue of contemporary artists with Balzac. This time, the museum opened its doors to Pierre Buraglio giving him an opportunity to develop his relationship with the writer.
