Balzac, who are you ?


October 19th 2019 to January 19th 2020


Everyone feels they know Honoré de Balzac, the icon of French literature. But, do we really know him? This exhibition reveals the novelist's private life through his letters and 150 portraits that sculpted Honoré de Balzac's image from the 19th century. From images of the young writer and official portraits to caricatures, artists have brought to life The Human Comedy author's many sides to mould our perception of Balzac as a dandy and "slave to the quill and ink".

Price: museum entry fee.
Partnership with Tours Fine Arts Museum // upon presentation of a standard ticket from Tours Fine Arts Museum, visitors can get discounted tickets at the Balzac Museum and vice versa.
