Art galeries

 

Galerie Les Yeux Fertiles

Created in 2001, the Galerie Les Yeux Fertiles displays works by artists from the international surrealist movement (Bellmer, Brauner, Masson, Matta, etc.) or those who went through a surrealist period in their careers (Erro and Goetz, for example). It also presents certain artists on the margins of surrealism (Sima, Fini), and those influenced by Automatism (such as Degottex and Hantaï). Also exhibited are works by artists bordering on Surrealism, from the Outsider Art (Lesage, Crepin) or Visionary Art movements and all those who explore the meanderings of the unconscious. The gallery is present at the major art fairs such as ArtParis and the Salon du Collectionneur.
