The museum holds a collection of artworks from the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, with modern and contemporary influences. Among them, great names of abstract art such as Roberta Gonzalez.
The art of Roberta Gonzalez is located halfway between abstraction and figuration. If the style she develops is personal, her painting is impregnated with cubist influence. Her father Julio Gonzales, himself an artist, was Picasso’s initiator in the art of iron sculpture.
This part of the collection has also been built up over the years, thanks to donations made by artists who have come to exhibit at the museum since the 2000s. The influences are varied, but are always related to the themes already present in the museum: plants, among others, Borman landscapes and mythological subjects.
The museum received an important donation from Robert Chiazzo, a local painter inspired by the work of Nicolas de Staël. Robert Chiazzo, inscribes Borman landscapes within abstract and colorful compositions. The artist’s approach and the inspiration he drew from the village of Bormes testify to the influence of Bormes’ landscapes on the creators. Finally, these works reflect the artistic emulation of the village, still relevant today.
We can mention other names such as Gino Fossali, Gaetano Fiore, Jean Arène or Tania Staquet.
Bormes still inspires artists today and continues to highlight contemporary creation with a rich artistic program. From May to November, the city exhibits current artists at the House of Artists and Cabasson. Find the program on the website of the city
