The Anatole Jakovsky International Museum of Naïve Art is located at the Château Sainte Hélène, surrounded by a large park with rare species.
Thanks to the prestigious donation of Anatole and Renée Jakovsky, the museum presents a unique panorama of a little-known art, qualified as "naïve" because it is spontaneous, individual, favouring the painter's inner vision, which invites each visitor to an imaginary journey.
We can thus discover the history of naïve painting from the eighteenth to the present day. Paintings, sculptures, drawings, posters, retrace the evolution of this art through the works of the most famous painters: Bauchant, Bombois, Vivin, Séraphine, Rimbert, Lefranc, Rabuzin, Ivan and Josip Généralic, Lackovic, Grandma Moses, O'Brady, Haddelsey, Ligabue, Vivancos, the Douanier Rousseau....
