ANDRÉ HAMBOURG  AND THE QUEST FOR LIGHT
André Hambourg (1909-1999) André Hambourg (1909-1999) has been living in the XX century, looking at his contemporaries without complacency, but with a lot of empathy. His paintings reflect this interest for the world surrounding him. Extending from his youth paintings, in which the dark roads absorbed the light, up to Maghreb that he discovered after winning the Abd-el-Tiff prize in 1933, the exhibition leads visitors to discover the universe of the artist. If the war period delivers the dark and dense nuances of his youth, his meeting with his future wife in 1948 transforms his style. Light is found throughout large skies, from Normandy to Provence.
For the first time since the reception of a major donation of André Hambourg’s works by his wife, the City of Deauville gives a tribute to him with an exhibition taking place at the Point de Vue. Among all the destinations appreciated by the painter, four regions are the symbols of his work and the people he met are found throughout this visit: the Parisian region, Maghreb, Provence and Normandy.
According to the period, his paintings may be full of shadows or light, but always glorified by the painter’s brush.
