The painters of the Opal Coast at the dawn of the twentieth century

This summer, the Museum of Touquet-Paris-Plage and the Department of Pas-de-Calais team up to propose an exhibition dedicated to the many painters who frequented our coast at the dawn of the twentieth century, around the original theme of the Night.
Presented in a part of the museum, the exhibition brings together some thirty paintings and some drawings, made between 1875 and 1916, around this rich and poetic subject.
The Night has charmed and inspired many artists of the Opal Coast who have revealed it warm, contemplative, distressing, disastrous, mystical. Sometimes deserted, sometimes animated, nocturnal scenes are also witnessing a laborious life of the late nineteenth - early twentieth century, on a rocked land between land and sea. Mysterious and obscure, the Night evokes in Man many emotions.
Sailing on these impressions, the exhibition brings together twenty or so French artists, such as Henri Le Sidaner, Eugène Chigot, Henri and Marie Duhem, Jan Lavezzari, or Francis Tattegrain, and foreigners such as Frits Thaulow, Harry Van der Weyden and Augustus Koopman. etc.
All came to put their easels on the coast as well as in the hinterland of Pas-de-Calais and many have frequented the artistic foci scattered along the coast, creating from the end of the 19th century a real emulation artistic from Berck to Wissant.
Illuminated windows, obscure and deserted countryside, disturbing dunes, fishing returns, sailor's portrait, evening prayers ... so many fascinating nocturnal scenes that offer a sensitive and reasoned thematic route to explore the night, from dusk to dawn.
An exhibition organized by the Museum of Touquet-Paris-Plage and the Department of Pas-de-Calais in partnership with the Quentovic Museum of Etaples-sur-Mer, the Roger Rodière Museum in Montreuil-sur-Mer and the Municipal Museum of Berck-sur-Mer.
