Art trades

We are proud to put forward the arts trades focusing on the following local talented artists:

  • Drawing – with Claude-Henri Fournerie who did the portrait of Vialatte that’s in the hotel window as well as the drawing « Vialatte croisant l’homme de Sempé et l’homme de Chaval sur la place Delille à Clermont ». He is a member of the Alexandre Vialatte Friends Association and an artist who, according to him, « vit et travaille de la plume et du pinceau à Clermont-Ferrand ». He is a cartoonist and illustrator, a painter and participates in different exhibitions. Alain Allemand, author of Abécédaire Alexandre Vialatte (Julliard, 2014) who kindly gave us several drawings

 

  •  We can thank Sylvie Pallot, journalist at La Montagne, for the « Portrait 12 13 de Vialatte à la Dubuffet » that sits in the hotel reception. In 2011, the 40th anniversary of the death of Vialatte, she was inspired by the friendship of Jean Dubuffet writer, born at the option of meeting in a studio in Montparnasse. So she did the portrait of Vialatte in the manner of Jean Dubuffet, inspired by his time «Hourloupe», known to the greatest number.

 

  •  Marion Daubannay set up her company Marion les couleurs in Vichy. She is a painter and interior decorator and did the beautifully painted murals in the hotel. In the bar on the ground floor, she chose a starry sky and the zodiac signs that Vialatte enjoyed talking about; on the 6th floor, she painted a wall in the style of Dubuffet’s « Closerie Falbala » and on the breakfast terrace she was inspired by a drawing by Chaval « Pharmaciens fuyants l’orage »

 

  •  Sculpture – with the works of Vialatte’s great friend Philippe Kaeppelin who did a small bird that sits in the “Bestiaire” and a smaller version of Vialatte’s bust in Ambert.

 

  •  Binding – with the two famous binders Nobuko Kiyomiya and Nathalie Berjon. Nobuko Kiyomiya works on the original edition’s deluxe of Battling le ténébreux. This is the description: « la reliure est en box vieux rouge veiné orné sur les plats d’un encadrement sinueux obtenu à partir de trois fils de lin accolés les uns aux autres, gainés de même box vieux rouge et incrustés en relief à mi- épaisseur, avec à quatre des angles une petite croix en fil de soie noire ; dos sans nerf portant le titre de l’ouvrage poussé en italique à l’oeser marron foncé. ». Nathalie Berjon sign the binding of Correspondence between Vialatte and Dubuffet which hotel has the original edition on large paper: « Reliure en plein cuir oasis rouge, gardes bord à bord en cuir et gardes en daim, chemise et étui bordé, dorure par Carole Laporte. »
