Musée Baston de Tourrettes - Var

A Tourrettes, village de caractère varois, Le Musée Baston ouvre ses portes au cœur de la Mairie, et vous invite à la découverte des œuvres des Artistes Thomas Ostoya et Denis Baston. Toujours garder au Cœur la recherche du Beau, tel un fil conducteur.

Description

Le Conseil Municipal, présidé par Monsieur Camille Bouge, a acté, en septembre 2020, les donations de l'artiste Thomas Ostoya, et de l'artiste Fayençois Denis Baston.
Ces généreuses et riches donations, à la commune de Tourrettes, sont composées de nombreuses sculptures, peintures, gouaches, dessins et bas reliefs.
Pour accueillir comme il se doit les œuvres de Thomas Ostoya et de Denis Baston, un Musée, au cœur du village, voit le jour.
Ainsi, toutes ces œuvres majestueuses, bercées par la douce lumière de la campagne tourrettane, telle une lointaine Toscane, s'offrent au regard du visiteur.

Par ailleurs, la mairie est l'ancienne maison des Villeneuve, réaménagée en 1596 dont le "château" avait été détruit. L'ancienne mairie s'orne d'un bas-relief maya, apposé à la mémoire de Joseph Marius Alexis Aubin (1802-1891) né à Tourrettes.
Précurseur de l'archéologie au Mexique, il collectionna les "codex" mexicains.
