VISIT PONT-AVEN, BRITTANY
WE TAKE YOU TO PONT-AVEN & AROUND
Painting is undoubtedly to Pont-Aven what romanticism is to Venice.
Pont-Aven is an incredibly attractive place and it is undoubtedly one of the most prestigious town in Brittany. Until the 19th century, the small merchant town of Pont-Aven was best known for its port and its famous water mills, grinding the celebrated black wheat, which is still used to make local crèpes (pancakes), and the famous biscuits de Pont-Aven. Then at the end of the century, Pont-Aven became an inexhaustible source of inspiration for the painter Paul Gauguin.
Falling under the spell of this small village in Finistère, he spent 8 years there until his departure for Tahiti in 1896. During these years, his art was revealed, through the Nabis movement and “The school of Pont- Aven ”which he created, leaving an indelible artistic imprint in the city.
It is impossible to miss the unique charm of its stone houses gathered along the Aven, its natural rivers, its light and the history of this village where Paul Gauguin will paint his greatest canvases.
In the company of our art historians, we will make you capture the soul of Paul Gauguin and the Nabis painters, of the region, of its inhabitants by by strolling through the places that have inspired them so much and by visiting the Pont-Aven museum, a real showcase of Gauguin’s paintings, in an absolutely unique way.
