Callot frescos

When Remy Callot died in 2001, his house was intended for destruction to build a traffic circle. But Remy Callot had spent his retirement to decorate his garden's walls with mosaic. So, in 2006, "the house of the fool" as it was called, was finally destroyed but walls were preserved and now, instead of a roundabout, it is question to build a museum of Art Brut. I truly hope it will!

The frescos are wonderful, coloured, dreamlike, they take you into phantasmagorical worlds where you can meet a pharaoh on his chariot, a dragon, knights, castles, horses, butterflies, does and other creatures
and even a mermaid blowing in a shell…
