After Jean-Pierre Pincemin's engravings in 2016, the Museums of Sens offer you a selection of rarely presented sculpted works and paintings. Sculptures and paintings will thus interact in the beautiful hall of the Orangery, for another approach to the abundant work of Jean-Pierre Pincemin.
An ogre of curiosity and an unusual personality, Jean-Pierre Pincemin constantly confronts works of the past and blurs references, his creative pleasure prevailing over avant-garde debates. In parallel to painting, he develops a sculpture in perpetual reinvention and experiments with all sorts of materials, techniques and balances.
The sculpture does not obey "an order of accumulation, since it is a grammatical order. It is rather an order of assembly and it is a totally different phenomenon from accumulation.

The exhibition will be closed due to the high temperatures affecting the conservation of the artist's works, which are particularly sensitive to them.
The exhibition will reopen subject to the possibility of reconciling comfort and quality of the visit on the one hand, and conservation of the works generously lent on the other.
The programme of events and visits around the exhibition is currently suspended.
