The François Desnoyer Collection

The François Desnoyer Collection revolves around the 1972 legacy with a collection of more than 700 works of the artist and a library rich in artists’ books, painters monographs and others…
“The painting composition begins once you have had the shock with nature. It is the start of the work. I go around it. After several colored sketches, I end at the final composition. I am a realist, only reality gives me the shock, then I compose, according to my studies made on nature, in my workshop”.
