    The Museum of Art and History is rich in a fine arts collection composed of numerous paintings, most of them dating from the 19th century. For several years now, the public has been invited to rediscover this rich collection through different themes.
    Landscapes in collections revisits the question of landscape through the collections of the Museum of Art and History but also the Museum of the Old Manor of Orbec and the Castle-Museum of Saint-Germain de Livet. These three Museums of France form the Pôle Muséal of the Communauté d'Agglomération Lisieux Normandie. In a resolutely dense display, reminiscent of the old Museum of Fine Arts and the salons of the nineteenth century, the exhibition unfolds thematically and takes us on a tour of Italy, strolling in nature, surveying the sea and the mountains, wandering through the city ... The landscapes also lead us on temporal journeys at different times of day, night and changing seasons. Did you say "landscape"? The word landscape originated in art in the 15th century. It means "painting representing a country". As a pictorial genre, landscape was long considered minor, ranked second to last behind other more traditional and academic genres and ahead of still life. The genre of landscape aims to depict an overall view of nature or, by extension, a place, a site of any kind. But the notion of landscape also underlies different questions. After outlining the history of landscape, the exhibition considers the question of the outdoors and the upheaval for artists who now leave the studio to paint on the ground. It also looks at the subjectivity inherent in each landscape through the point of view, the framing but also the emotion transcribed in each image. Finally, the perspective that immerses the viewer and leads his gaze into the depths of the landscape is also addressed. From Tuesday to Saturday 2pm-6pm. Closed on Monday.
