1859 – 2015 cultural heritage

An art gallery at 39 rue Paradis was established by Eugène Lambert in 1859. [1] At the beginning of its work, the gallery focused on presenting the Provencal painters artworks, first of all a group of artists led by Émile Loubon(1809-1863 ), later called The School of Marseilles: [3] Auguste Auguier (1814-1865), Paul Guigou (1834-1871), Prosper Grésy (1801-1874), Adolphe Monticelli (1824-1886).

Along with the modern Provencal painters, the gallery exposed the works of the Barbizon school artists ( Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot (1796-1875), Eugene Boudin (1824-1898), Gustave Caillebotte (1848-1894)), [1] as well as the masters of previous epochs, Such as Michelangelo (1475-1564), Caravaggio (1571-1610), Murillo (1617-1682), and Jean-Honoré Fragonard (1732-1806). [1]

After Eugène Lambert retired in 1923, his follower Alexandre Jouvène became the art gallery manager. In 1923 the gallery was officially named Jouvene. [1] Among other great names exhibited in the gallery during the period of 1923 – 1946, were Paul Cezanne (1839-1906), Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890), Renoir (1841-1919) and Felix Ziem (1821-1911) , Jean-Baptiste Olive (1848-1936), François-Marius Granet (1775-1849), Theodore Rousseau(1812-1867), James Barry (1741-1806), Joseph Suchet (1824-1896), Joseph Garibaldi (1863- 1941), Louis-Léopold Boilly (1761-1845), Jean Roque(1880-1925), Louis Gustav Ricard (1823-1873), Joseph Vernet (1714-1789), Joseph Boze (1746-1826), Vincent Courdouan (1810-1893), and Pierre Puget (1620-1694). [1]

After 1946, with new managers, the Jouven gallery continues the tradition of presenting the Provençal painters artworks. The gallery worked closely with the contemporary expressionists, such as: Georges Briata (1933-), Yvette Bonté (1925-), Raymond Garnier, François Guy (1940-), Jean-Paul Courchia (1955-). [4]

During the times, the Jouvène gallery has been a place of meetings of painters, art collectors, art critics, and journalists.
