‘Carrières de Lumières’, the famous shows ’Carrières du Val d’Enfer’, has now restarted.
The site reopened with the show “Gauguin – Van Gogh, painters of colour”, created by Renato Gatto, Gianfranco Iannuzzi and Massimiliano Siccardi, amining to show the links between Vincent Van Gogh and Paul Gauguin, analysing how different their ways of using colour were.
The show starts looking at their two careers, which had a number of similarities: both started out painting landscapes in northern Europe (the Netherlands for Van Gogh and Brittany for Gauguin) before returning to the South of France, later reaching an explosion of colour inspired by the Pacific islands for Gauguin and northern France for Van Gogh.
The show transports visitors to the colourful world of these painters and submerge them in a world of images, where paintings come to life before their very eyes.
The Carrières are open every day.
April to September: 10 a.m – 7 p.m
October to March: 10 a.m – 6 p.m.
