Félix Ziem, le ReposoirNadar, Portrait d'Etienne Jules Marey à l'âge de 39 ans


The Musée des Beaux-Arts de Beaune is devoting a new exhibition entitled "Destins croisés, 300 ans de génie Beaunois" (Crossed destinies, 300 years of Beaune genius), which highlights more than twenty great historical figures who have contributed to the development and influence of the capital of Burgundy wines.

Through a thematic tour, the exhibition highlights the singular itineraries of more than twenty great historical figures linked to Beaune. Artists, actors, musicians, inventors, agronomists, politicians and historians from the 18th to the 20th century are evoked through a hundred or so objects from the municipal collections of Beaune and private collections, notably the Fallot Mustard Factory.

In addition to famous names, the exhibition allows visitors to discover or rediscover the heritage of Beaulieu's personalities who left their mark on their time through their commitment, talent or innovations. The mathematician Gaspard Monge, the physiologist Etienne Jules Marey, the painter Félix Ziem, the actress Marie Favart...

This retrospective, which cannot be exhaustive, honours some of those who have worked for the development and influence of Beaune. Paintings, sculptures, models, archive documents and video extracts are brought together to illustrate the life and work of men and women from various backgrounds, some famous, some little known, whose legacy has enriched our common heritage.
"Destins croisés" is also an opportunity for the City of Beaune to pay tribute to the Beaune philosopher, sociologist and anthropologist Bruno Latour, who passed away in 2022, and whose abundant archives recently joined the municipal collections.
