Richard ANACREON, book seller and collector
Richard Anacréon was born in Granville in 1907 and died here in 1992, but in the 1980's he gifted his birthplace some 280 art pieces and 550 antiquarian books that together form an unrivalled collection of art from the first half of the 20th century.
Ranging from the dawn of the 20th century to the 1950's, it demonstrates the fine taste of this knowledgeable collector who brought together works by the finest artists of his time: Maximilien Luce, André Derain, Maurice de Vlaminck, Kees Van Dongen, to name the outstanding figures, as well as works less well-known artists such as Charles Dufresne, Elisée Maclet, Auguste Chabaud, etc.
