Maurice Ménardeau, un peintre en mission à La Réunion dans les années Trente : Une perception de l’Île à rebours des clichés exotiques

Abstract : Navy Painter in a postimpressionism style, Maurice Ménardeau visited Reunion Island three times during the 1930s. He was sent by the Colonial Ministry in order to enhance this remote French Colony of the Indian Ocean. He achieved a vast program of Paintings for the cities' townhalls of Saint-Paul and Saint-Denis. His work, although not very well known, is an evidence of this island's landscapes at that time but constitutes also a practical witness of the economic growth and social development as well as a profound need of enhancement of touristic values.
