Floréal by Ernest Guy, an artist from Porrentruy, offers a space of freedom and fantasy. This 1918 painting is surprising for its monumental size and palette of colours, which lend the scene an enchanting, fairytale atmosphere. Androgynous figures holding a book sing, while others dance and play music. These evanescent figures float in space, reminiscent of angels or supernatural apparitions. The composition evokes a dreamlike, poetic world where the imagination can wander freely. Guy’s work is a call to reverie, a celebration of beauty and lightness that offers a haven of peace for the mind.
Oil on canvas, inv. 1568
