Auguste Morisot

An exceptional leaded glass canopy

9 March 2019 to 23 June 2019

Launched by the French Ministry of Culture, the Culture près de chez vous [Near-by Culture] programme proposes a pro-active cultural and artistic irrigation policy outside of Paris by circulating works of art belonging to the French State. Selected to take part in this nationwide opportunity, the Conches Glass Museum thus can exhibit this magnificent interior leaded glass canopy inspired by Mother Nature, attributed to the painter Auguste Morisot, which was produced in 1916 by the Nicod and Jubin studio in Lyon. From the former Rispal collection which is now in the Orsay Museum, these panels of the canopy, assembled as a dressing screen, represent a landscape at the seaside.
