…….. A SHORT EXPLANATION…………………

 

For the last twenty years, Lou Bassaquet has wanted, wished, dreamed of being a « meeting place »…

 

Let’s be honest, we’re here to publicise and sell our wines…

 

But ever since we opened our cellars to the public, we have tried to create a place where anyone can come in and see paintings, sculptures or photographs.in an environment where even the uninitiated can see, touch and discover…..

 

Over the years, we’re proud to say that Lou Bassaquet has contributed to democratizing a certain regard and criticism of Art…how many people, intimidated by museums, have found with Lou Bassaquet, that they too can appreciate Art.

 

Whether it’s the first exhibition of an unknown artist or a well known artist exhibiting his work (and we have had some of the region’s finest)……..

 

Whether it’s figurative painting or contemporary painting……….

 

Whether it’s well known or unknown……….

 

Whether it’s « beautiful » or « not at all beautiful »

(Lets get back to the definition of Art depending on the era and the generation and we can discuss that…………………..)

 

Surely the most important aspect of this is that these means of expression exist and that the public can see them for free ?

 

Because what is Art if it is not alive and visible to all ?

 

Lou Bassaquet has never fallen into the trap of elitism and egocentrism.

 

It will always remain a place for the PUBLIC, big…..and small.
