The exhibition presents a remarkable set of drawings of theatre and ballet costumes and scenery by the painter and engraver Gerard Cochet (1888-1969), brought together in Roubaix thanks to an exceptional donation from the family of the artist, granted to the museum in 2009. Born in Avranches, Gerard Cochet grew up in Nantes. He took up painting at a very young age with his friend Amedee de La Patelliere (1890-1932), while pursuing classical studies at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Nantes and then at the Academie Julian in Paris. After the First World War, where he was wounded and lost an eye, he began a successful career, marked by regular participations in exhibitions at the Societe Nationale des Beaux-Arts, Salon des Independants, Salon d’Automne and Jeune Gravure Contemporaine. Later in his career the artist became a painter of the landscapes and farmers of the Manche Department in Normandy, race tracks and bourgeois homes and also regularly evoked the theatre and music that he loved so much.
