Direc­tor of the museum says “good­bye” to Alain Godon’s paintings

Sunday was the last day of Alain Godon’s exhi­bi­tion, Extrav­a­ganza. Three ques­tions for Sophie Deshayes, direc­tor of the museum of Le Tou­quet. So, happy? “Yes! This is a new record: 4,400 vis­i­tors in Feb­ru­ary which is quite excep­tional. Our major exhi­bi­tions more gen­er­ally attract a national pub­lic. With Extrav­a­ganza, we noticed an unusual num­ber of local peo­ple. And there were as many first time vis­i­tors to the museum, as there were those who came back!

There were lots of fam­i­lies. Chil­dren, who ini­tially came with their schools, brought their par­ents and showed them around the exhi­bi­tion. “What is the impact on the resort? “If Godon has put on an exhi­bi­tion here in Le Tou­quet, it is because of his spe­cial attach­ment to the resort. French artists often strug­gle to break through out­side France, yet Godon has been able to pen­e­trate beyond our bor­ders, espe­cially in the United States. Inter­est in the resort and the pub­lic­ity for town’s image has reached a much wider audi­ence. Godon is a real ambas­sador in for­eign lands.
