  • The quality and quantity of works, animations around those above participate in the pleasure of our regular visits. The Museum is the cultural showcase of the audacity of the sands and its inhabitants. The development of art brut is a success. The Museum expanded will allow us d admire a little more...

  • Gaston CHAISSAC the bourguignon who lived especially in the Vendée becomes over the decades the artist that you can not miss. Since the first donations from her daughter at the Museum of the Holy Cross Abbey, in the sixties, we discover this unusual, unique, original, contemporary artist better. The Museum is the main receptacle for these works, but we can see CHAISSAC elsewhere. We saw in the trip to Nantes at the chapel of the Immaculate, at the Museum of arts but also in Grenoble where the curator TOSSATO had done a great teaching job on the work of CHAISSAC. At Sables D'olonne, the Museum made a new exhibit very complete but a little frozen: the dynamism of letters CHAISSAC's barely glimpsed, the totems are not as valued as they deserve. On the other hand, the tables well aware of the journey of the artist. And if you're in lower Poitou, go to Holy FLORENCE of the OIE school where CHAISSAC wife was a teacher. Gaston CHAISSAC's decorated offices in the Court... To my knowledge, these are the only toilets to be protected as a work of art... Go see.

  • We are visiting the exhibition after reading a review in knowledge of the Arts and we were delighted, both by the richness and the quality of the works of Gaston Chaissac permanent collections and also the place. Don't miss, the black and white exhibition in the attic! It should be noted the friendliness of reception staff plus, their enthusiasm for this beautiful museum that is worth the trip, including Paris. In addition, the city is attractive with its beautiful sea front and Harbour. Thanks to the Commissioners of the great exhibition.
