Les Fées (December 2002 through March 2003)

Myrea Pettit at Daoulas Abbey FranceLes Fées (The Fairies), curated by Claudine Glot, was a major exhibition of Les Fées held at Daoulas Abbey, near Brest in the Brittany region of France.

The exhibition looks at faeries in art and stories from medieval manuscripts to the present day. It included art by many of the well known fairy tale painters of the past (such as Gustave Dore, Richard Doyle, R.A. Bell, Walter Crane, Arthur Rackham, Edmund Dulac, etc.), as well as sketches for the designs of 19th century fairy operas and ballet costumes.

The show also looked at "fairy enthusiasts" (famous authors and collectors of faery tales), fairy phenomenon such as the Cottingly photographs, and magical films ranging from Disney cartoons to Jim Henson's The Dark Crystal.

Paintings and sculpture by Brian Froud, Wendy Froud, Alan Lee, and Terri Windling were exhibited in the contemporary portion of the show.

A catalogue of the exhibition will be published by Editions Hoebeke, Paris, with text by Claudine Glot, Pierre Dubois (author of The Great Encyclopedia of Faeries), Terri Windling, and others.
