MuMa : Photographing in Normandy


Photographing in Normandy: a pioneering dialogue between the arts 1840-1890 is the exhibition being held at MuMa in Le Havre until September 22.

This exhibition aims to highlight the decisive role that Normandy played in the beginnings of photography. A field of experimentation and innovation for the greatest photographers since the 1840s, whether inventors or artists, Normandy is the ideal place to measure the reciprocal influence of the arts. The MuMa exhibition confronts masterpieces of painting and photography, from pioneers to the biggest names. The variety of formats and techniques allows us to understand the extraordinary technical abundance of these beginnings of photography. The exhibitions presents works by impressionist painters from the collections of the MuMa or major institutions such as the Musée d’Orsay or the Museums of Fine Arts of Lyon and Amiens (with Eugène Boudin, Gustave Courbet, Johan Barthold Jongkind, Louis Alexandre Dubourg, Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro…) alongside photographs by Auguste Autin, Edmond Bacot, Hippolyte Bayard, Julien Blot, Alphonse de Brébisson, Hippolyte Fizeau, William Henry Fox Talbot, Humbert de Molard, Gustave Le Gray, the Macaire brothers and Jean-Victor Warnod…

Exhibiting photographs on the occasion of the 5th edition of Normandie Impressionniste and especially for the 150th anniversary of the movement, makes perfect sense, as painting and photography have maintained close links.
