The artist:

ATELIER RICHARD LESSAULT

From scrap (iron, metal, steel, plastic ...) recovered from individuals, craftsmen, farmers, industrial waste collectors, I create contemporary sculptures (especially zoomorphic).

My works are of various sizes (pocket to monumental!), Both for the interior and exterior (the paints used are body paints or anti-rust, varnishes of Rustol).

The recovery of materials (old tools, obsolete stocks ...) was essential for my first sculptures in a concern of economies and reduction of the costs.

La Maison Du Patrimoine

The CDM hosts exhibition spaces and educational workshops: essential and inseparable elements of heritage mediation, core business of the national network of Cities and Countries of Art and History (VPAH). You will also find the whole of the Pole Mediation (lecturers and administrative guides), the Inventory Pole (Research on movable heritage, monumental and intangible), a documentation center and a presentation of the VPAH network.

Espace Culturel Altitude 500

The Espace Culturel Altitude 500 is a service-oriented cultural center designed for meeting, sharing, performing, and more.

As part of this mission, it makes its premises and equipment available throughout the year for presentations, concerts, stage performances and shows of all kinds, workshops, and community activities.

There are also two rehearsal and recording rooms available for musicians to use at very reasonable rates (from €4 to €15 per hour).

Théâtre De Grasse

It is an artistic season full of constraints that promises to be, because of the works programmed at the theater of Grasse from September 2017 to March 2018.

For the safety and comfort of the spectators, the theater has a facelift to quickly become the place of welcome and emotions that we hold so much.

Villa Saint-Hilaire

Home, Garden, & Landscape Resource Center

La Villa Saint-Hilaire, formerly the municipal library, is now a Home, Garden, and Landscape Resource Center which was officially unveiled on May 29, 2015.

The content, book, media, and educational selection focuses on the individual relationship between man and nature, dovetailing heritage and public reading opportunities.

This library is organized in sections – Landscape and Region/Garden/ Home/Lifestyle – and can satisfy younger groups (ages six and up), as well as adults and university-level academics.

Fragonard museum

The Fragonard Museum is set within the Hôtel de Villeneuve, a magnificent historic building that has reclaimed its original luster of a grand 18th-century Grasse mansion.

Dedicated to Grasse’s most famous son, painter Jean-Honoré Fragonard (1732-1806), the museum displays over a dozen major works by this great artist.

It also houses a collection of paintings of two other Grasse artists, Marguerite Gérard (1761-1837) and Jean-Baptiste Mallet (1759-1835).
