Long Description:

"Renowned landscape painter, avant-garde colorist, Emmanuel de la Villéon was born in Fougères in 1858. He is one of the last impressionists, he is the painter of harmony, of tranquil joy, of equilibrium, of peasant serenity, where even miseries are planed by the slow rhythm of the seasons

Completely renovated in 2012, the museum presents, in addition to paintings, boxes of sets of the small theater that the painter had made for his children.

The porch house, whose construction dates back to the 16th century, is the last of the houses of this type that bordered the rue Nationale and rue de la Pinterie. Most disappeared in the fires that devastated the city in the 17th century and during the bombing of June 1944. "

" Paysagiste de renom, coloriste d'avant-garde, Emmanuel de la Villéon est né à Fougères en 1858. C'est l’un des derniers impressionnistes. Il est le peintre de l’harmonie, de la joie tranquille, de l’équilibre, de la sérénité paysanne, où même les misères sont rabotées par le rythme lent des saisons.

Totalement rénové en 2012, le musée présente, outre des tableaux, des cartons de décors du petit théâtre que le peintre avait réalisés pour ses enfants.

La maison à porche dont la construction remonte au 16ème siècle est la dernière des habitations de ce type qui bordaient notamment la rue Nationale et la rue de la Pinterie. La plupart disparurent dans les incendies qui ravagèrent la ville au 17ème siècle et lors du bombarbement de Juin 1944."
