Petit Futé's opinion on THE JACOBINS

Vintage plate 2020

This old church, now desacralized, is the only vestige of the former Dominican convent, also known as the Jacobins (the Dominicans in Paris were on Jacob Street). It is a rectangular vessel and not in the form of a cross, as was the custom of this monastic order, which advocated a certain austerity, both in their religious practice and in their architecture. This church of the Jacobins makes a breach in the rule, not the least! Look up into the nave and you will see the impressive vaults supported by massive columns. This type of architecture was forbidden by the Dominican order led by Humbert de Romans until his death in 1263. The construction of the vaults dates from 1265, which explains this! After having been used as a stable, prison and finally as a meeting room to write the cahiers de doléances of the Revolution. Used today as an exhibition space for the Fine Arts Museum, it hosted two exhibitions in 2016, one entitled "From China to Japan" and the other, by Gérard Fromanger, entitled "Announce the Color! " A tribute to Louis Ducos du Hauron, from Agen and one of the inventors of color photography. In 2017, it was the artist Arnaud Théval who exhibited his works: "The inverted eyecup, the emptied prison and its blues". The event that marked 2019 was of course the exhibition on Goya and his works and in particular the loan by the Louvre of "La dame à l'éventail", among other wonders. A place to discover absolutely.

Visite de l'expo Goya
Nous sommes allés en famille visiter l'exposition Goya, que était modeste mais bien structuré. Et surtout à une heure de Toulouse où nous résidons.

Exposition Goya
Une très belle exposition dans un beau bâtiment. Le film d’1/4 d’heure donne un bon aperçu de la vie et de l’œuvre de l’artiste. Les œuvres exposées sont présentées par thème.
