An extraordinary building
André Boyer drew up the plans for the Denys-Puech Museum that was inaugurated on July 17th 1910. Still today, large bay windows create a rhythm on the façade and flood the ground floor with light to showcase the sculptures.
In 1989, the artist François Morellet worked on the side walls of the Fine Arts Museum. He layered basic geometric shapes (a circle and square) made out of the same materials as those used in André Boyer’s architecture. You can only see them from a specific point of view and they melt into the building’s architecture as soon as you move away.
In 2005, Aveyron artist Aurèle created portraits of bronze bull terriers painted yellow. They stand on the outer consoles.
François Morellet’s additions and Aurèle’s sculptures are part of the Art in the Aveyron public area.
