Exhibition Nos rêves s’en iront par les chemins…
Bohuslav Reynek, Suzanne Renaud, engravings and poems
Bibliothèque d’étude et du patrimoine, 12 boulevard Maréchal-Lyautey – Grenoble, France
April 2 to December 2 2015
The City of Grenoble owns a Renaud Reynek collection, unique in France considering its richness and diversity. It started in the early 80’s thanks to Suzanne Renaud and Bohuslav Reynek’s Grenoble friends who successively made donations. It’s essentialy composed of engravings and original drawings by Bohuslav Reynek and autograph letters by Suzanne Renaud. The exhibition Nos rêves s’en iront par les chemins… [Along the trails our dreams will go…], organized by the Grenoble Municipal Library, unveils part of this precious patrimonial as well as works from private collections and from the recently created Renaud Reynek Dotation Fund.
Two rooms are devoted to the exhibition and together with the literary, artistic and political background, one can enjoy, soberly displayed, the continuity of Reynek work as a translator, painter and engraver as well as the poetical work of his spouse covering forty years of their common life as a couple. The exhibition is organized around two periods hinged on 1936 when they left Grenoble. Focus is made on the two artists’s links with Dauphiné. Visitors will be moved by the silent drawings and engravings, the poems, letters and rare works.
