MAISON DE VICTOR HUGO : 120 YEARS

 

 

维克多-雨果博物馆庆祝120周年

 

The House of Victor Hugo celebrates its 120th anniversary with an exhibition from 10 May to 3 September 2023.

Through more than 230 works, it is an opportunity to look at these collections and the way they have been completed over the years…

 

A unique place

 

MAISON DE VICTOR HUGO is a unique place to discover the great man and to become familiar with his work.

It was Paul Meurice, his faithful friend, who had the innovative idea of creating this museum on Victor Hugo’s centenary in 1902. The project was supported by the Hugo family.

The Maison de Victor Hugo is not only the first monographic museum, but also the first literary museum.

The incredibly rich collections include drawings by Victor Hugo, memorabilia and furniture sometimes created by Hugo himself, works illustrating his writings, photographs, paintings, sculptures, prints, manuscripts, archives and a library, the diversity, quality, and the spirit of which are shown here.

 

维克多·雨果博物馆为庆祝其120周年,于2023年5月10日至9月3日举办纪念展览。通过230多件作品,让人们有机会看看这些年来博物馆的藏品慢慢积攒的方式…..

在维克多·雨果博物馆这个独特的地方,我们可以了解这位伟人,并且熟悉他的作品。正是他忠实的朋友保罗·莫里斯,在1902年维克多·雨果百年诞辰之际,提出了创建这个博物馆的想法。该项目得到了雨果家族的支持。

维克多·雨果博物馆不仅是第一个专题博物馆,也是第一个文学博物馆。在令人难以置信的丰富藏品里包括维克多·雨果的图画、甚至是一些雨果自己创造的物品和家具。这些表现他的著作的照片、绘画、雕塑、版画、手稿、档案和书柜,其多样性、质量和精华都在这里得到了展示。

Exhibition – anniversary

An exhibition in four parts

 

More than 230 works are displayed on the two floors of the museum. In four parts, the museum pays tribute to Paul Meurice and to the descendants of Victor Hugo.

The journalist, novelist, and playwright Paul Meurice (1818-1905) met Victor Hugo in 1836 and became one of his closest friends.

 

Hugo  in images

 

Paul Meurice was the master of illustrated editions of Victor Hugo’s writings. To form the initial core of the collection, he gathered preparatory drawings or paintings, numerous test prints of the engravings and a virtually complete collection of these editions.

To give this collection more strength and to compensate for the dispersion of the works inspired by Hugo throughout the 19th century, he also commissioned works from famous artists of the time.

Three of the writer’s most emblematic works, Notre-Dame de Paris, Les Burgraves and Les Misérables, are on display.

Notre-Dame de Paris was published in 1831. It was a huge success, and the novel immediately attracted the attention of painters. Illustrated editions and adaptations followed one another throughout the 19th century until today.

周年纪念展览

 

超过230件作品在博物馆的两层楼里展出。通过四个部分,博物馆向保罗·莫里斯和维克多·雨果的后代致敬。

保罗·莫里斯是记者、小说家兼剧作家,于1836年结识了维克多·雨果,并成为他最亲密的朋友之一。

也是保罗·莫里斯策划维克多·雨果出版作品中的插图。为了组成藏品的最核心的部分,他收集了大量图案、绘画、版画,大量的印刷品,以及雨果著作各种版本的几乎完整的收藏。为了使这一收藏更加非富,并弥补整个19世纪受雨果启发的作品的分散性,他还向当时的著名艺术家定制。

此次展出的是雨果最具代表性的三部作品:《巴黎圣母院》、《卫戍官》和《悲惨世界》的收藏。

《巴黎圣母院》于1831年出版并取得了巨大的成功,这部小说立即吸引了画家们的注意。插图版本和改编本在整个19世纪相继出版,直至今日。

LES BURGRAVES was first performed at the Comédie-Française in March 1843. It seems to reflect a new inflection in Hugo’s theatre.

LES MISÉRABLES, published in 1862 in Brussels and Paris. The success was enormous, and the work remains Victor Hugo’s most famous. It has never ceased to inspire illustrators, painters, and sculptors… Film adaptations and musicals have followed one another around the world.

The museum holds over 10,000 prints. This collection, centered around Victor Hugo, bears witness to the great diversity and enormous production of the press and illustrated publishing in the 19th century, as well as the creations of great artists.

 

《卫戍官》于1843年3月在法兰西喜剧院首次演出。它似乎反映了雨果戏剧中的一个新转折点。

《悲惨世界》于1845年开始创作,1862年在布鲁塞尔和巴黎出版。这部作品取得了巨大的成功,它仍然是维克多-雨果最著名的作品。

雨果的作品从未停止过对插画师、画家和雕塑家的启发,电影改编和音乐剧也在世界各地相继上演。

该博物馆拥有超过10,000件印刷品。这些以维克多-雨果为中心的藏品,见证了19世纪新闻和插图出版业的多样性, 和惊人的产量。

Openness to the works of the 20th and 21st centuries

The work of two artists bear witness to this openness to the works of the 20th and 21st centuries.

The Austrian artist Arnulf Rainer, a major figure on the contemporary art scene, built his work based on expressionism and informal art.

In 1998, he began to work with drawings by Victor Hugo, following this principle. He enlarges details, reverses certain images, accompanies, and transforms Hugo’s gesture.

Victor Hugo remains a constant source of inspiration for the artist Julius Baltazar.

In these abstract paintings, Julius Baltazar stands on the edge of allusion through titles that evoke Les Travailleurs de la mer, suggesting an abstract marine landscape, streaked with ink lines that are like a metaphor for writing.

 

周年纪念展览中两位现代艺术家的作品展示了博物馆对20和21世纪作品的开放性。奥地利艺术家Arnulf Rainer作为当代艺术界的重要人物,他的作品建立在表现主义和非正式艺术的基础上。1998年,遵循这一原则,他开始使用有关维克多-雨果的画作。他放大细节,颠覆了某些图像,从而实现独特的效果。

维克多-雨果也是艺术家Julius Baltazar的一个持续的灵感。在这些独立的抽象画中,Julius Baltazar尝试通过«海上劳工» 的主题,暗示了一个抽象的海洋景观,条纹的墨水笔触,就像写作的隐喻。

Jean Hugo’s major contribution

The anniversary exhibition highlights the essential role of Victor Hugo’s great-grandson. Jean Hugo is one of the major donors to the museum, either in his own name or in association with family members.

Jean Hugo played a decisive role in building up the collection of manuscripts that had been left out of Paul Meurice’s project.

Thanks to him, from 1950 to 1981, a considerable number of letters, archives, and manuscripts from the various members of the Hugo family entered the museum, leading to other important donations. There are more than three hundred letters from Hugo to members of his family and hundreds of replies.

 

让-雨果

周年纪念展览强调了维克多·雨果的曾孙的重要作用。让-雨果是博物馆的主要捐赠者之一,他曾经以自己的名义或与家人们一起捐赠藏品。

让-雨果在被保罗-莫里斯项目中忽略的手稿收藏方面发挥了决定性的作用。多亏了他,从1950年到1981年,大量来自雨果家族不同成员的信件、档案和手稿藏入博物馆,也带动了其他重要的捐赠。这里有三百多封雨果写给他的家庭成员的信和数百封回信。

Exclusive interview

with

Gérard Audinet

 

This exhibition is directed by Gérard Audinet, the current director of the Maison de Victor Hugo. There have been seven directors since its opening in 1903.

Could you explain your inspiration for this anniversary exhibition?

Our wish for this exhibition is twofold. Firstly, to show the great diversity of our collection and to show how it has happily complemented each other over time. The public can see how the works of Victor Hugo have inspired artists from their creation to the present day.

As far as the tour is concerned, we wanted each section to have a different atmosphere, in order to bring out the richness and diversity of the works.

It’s important to us to show that a museum is not static, but continues to evolve and grow, while remaining true to the vision set out by Paul Meurice, the museum’s founder. The way in which he originally conceived it, illustrating all aspects of Victor Hugo – the writer, the artist and the man – meant that it was destined to be a real museum and not just a place of memory closed to remembrance.

独家采访

 

本次展览由维克多-雨果博物馆的现任馆长Gérard Audinet策划。自1903年开馆以来,已经有七位馆长。

 

您能解释一下这个周年展览的灵感吗?

我们对这次展览有着双重愿望。首先,展示博物馆收藏品的丰富多样性,其次也展示随着时间的推移,博物馆如何日积月累地丰富收藏。人们可以看到维克多-雨果的作品从最初到现在是如何启发艺术家的灵感。就展览而言,我们希望每个部分都有不同的氛围,既能使这种丰富性和多样性显现出来,又能使作品得到更好地观赏。对我们来说,重要的是要表明,博物馆不是静止的,在忠于创建者保罗-莫里斯所确定的目标的同时,博物馆还会继续发展。保罗最初构想的模式,就是展现了维克多·雨果人物的多样性,不仅是作家、艺术家,也是一位男性。所以这里是一个真正的博物馆,而不仅仅是一个封闭的记忆场所。
