From mid July, four different sites will show the exhibition “The Lamberts, European scholars in Marina Alta” in Javea, Alicante. More than 400 works owned by Mila Boutan, a relative of the Lamberts will be displayed at La Casa del Cable, la Casa de Tena, Fundación Cirne and Museo Soler Blasco.
First displayed in 2012, in the Museo Valenciano de la Illustración y la Modernidad (MUVIM) museum, the exhibition contained a complete recap of André-Louis Lambert’s and his son André Lambert’s professional trajectory, who lived in Paris, the European capital of modernism at the beginning of the 20th century and the city of Javea, in Alicante, where the Lambert family also owned a residence.
André Lambert, who trained in illustration and engraving in the cities of Paris and Munich, settled in Javea in 1920, and established a studio dedicated to his second discipline. During his stay in Javea he was accompanied by his father, André-Louis Lambert, an art historian and architect, who dedicated his time to drawing the landscape and architecture of Marina Alta. The exhibition “The Lamberts, European experts in Marina Alta”, taking place in Javea, will show almost a third of material not displayed at the previous exhibition at the MUVIM museum. Some highlights of the exhibition include drawings, aquarelles, etchings and books, alongside explanation boards and audiovisual material that shows photos of Javea’s architecture with comments by André-Louis Lambert.
