During my childhood, three generations of Troisgros occupied more than half of the hotel. The clients who stayed with us had a real feeling of being welcomed into a home. Over time, the quality of that welcome, and the style and level of comfort have all evolved. But the care and attention given to each guest have remained almost the same.
Calm spaces of contemporary inspiration are arranged around an enclosed garden. The bedrooms feature clean lines, soft tones and natural materials. A large collection of books on world cuisine, and voyages, inspires amateurs. There is also a fitness room and sauna. And all around, there are original works of art by contemporary artists such as Favier, Traquandi, Shütte, Tusek, Dörner, Pia Fries or impressionists such as Jean Puy which create the atmosphere.

Helmut Dorner
Toscano, 2004

I have a weakness for this German's work. This large abstract canvas (actually on Plexiglas) evokes Tuscany, a land of noble tradition and history.

I am touched by the intense energy it gives off. I like the dribbles and splashes which punctuate the surface, the superimposed layers of shiny and colourful paint revealing new forms. The effects of transparency and opacity, the play of dark and light projected onto the wall heighten the visual fascination. My eyes are wide open when I stand before this painting.
Helmut Dorner was born in 1952; he lives and works in Karlsruhe (Germany).

Gabriel Dauchot
(1927-2005)

My grandfather, who appreciated art, also had a good eye and the subtlety of this portrait didn't escape him. Having been a café waiter himself, the portrait of this man reminded him of his early career and probably moved him. Perhaps his melancholy and sad face evoked what he feared above all: routine.
This timeless drawing has a good spot in the library and has become familiar to us.

Pia Fries
Broder, 2001

I invite you to appreciate this painting by Pia Fries, which struck me immediately when I discovered her work at the Nelson Gallery. Looking closely, it must be the material. Surely. Created in relief, generous, undulating. There are similarities with meringue, crushed by the pastry cook's hands. The palette of bursting colours adds to the dynamism and strength of the painting. They are all muddled up, one on top of another, creating abstract and fascinating forms. In order to obtain these textures, Pia applies the paint without a brush straight onto wood with one or several tubes simultaneously. She then uses different tools to flatten, raise, mix, undulate and give life to the work.

Eric Poitevin
sans titre, 2000

Born in 1961, the artist lives and works in a village near Verdun, called Mangiennes. This magnificent and large photograph is on display in one of the dining rooms of the hotel. It is remarkable. This symbolic tree, static and yet living, draws the eye and fascinates. The sublime bark of the tree, the trembling of a branch, the delicate variation of the natural light: nothing is left to chance by this artist who works with large-format camera.
Eric minutely considers his images (sometimes involving a wait of several months before seizing the right moment), then sets them up and invites our gaze.

Gérard Traquandi
Montagne, 2001

This work by Gérard Traquandi, artist whose photographic work has already been presented, is an engraving. The technique consists of drawing a motif on a plate, usually made of copper, using a sharp, hard point to score just what is required, then coating it with ink, wiping with a cloth, then the palm of the hand.
The ink slides into the grooves. Paper is then applied and pressed onto the plate with a roller. The technique is subtle and the result magnificent. Gérard Traquandi has always had a strong link with the mountains (he dreamed of becoming a guide), and he climbs regularly. He measures himself against the mountain, to its scale and space, as he measures up his paintings, with intensity.
