The Musée Bouchard usually displays sculptures in the former studio of the sculptor Henri Bouchard (1875-1960). Today, for the first time, old archive photographs acquired by the museum will be displayed, presenting, chronologically, the studios in which he worked.
Four places, coinciding with distinct vital creative periods are therefore 'hung' from the picture rails of the museum.
Next to the photographs, some sculptures will be displayed: some will be discernible on the old plates or others will have been created during the period that is referred to. This will allow the visitor to see the style in its real proportions which cannot always be grasped from a photograph.
