Musée Jean Couty 1 Place Henri Barbusse - 69009 Lyon 9ème

Based on the theme of water, the museum is putting on a retrospective featuring a selection of the artist’s works from the early 1930s to the end of his life in 1991.
You are invited on a journey to rivers, seas and oceans, from Brittany to the Indian Ocean, via the Mediterranean, a timeless sea that has shaped generations of artists since Antiquity.
Like Joseph Vernet, who, on request from Louis XV of France, went on a tour of the kingdom to paint views of its ports during the second half of the eighteenth century, Jean Couty also depicted France’s ports in his works (Saint-Malo, Concarneau, La Rochelle…), as well as foreign seas and waterfront cities (the Serenissima Venice, Santorini, Taormina…)
