Press release from: Atelier Stefan Szczesny


Established in 2020, the Szczesny Art Foundation Endowment Fund holds its first Exhibition at the Château de la Moutte Park in Saint-Tropez, an estate which had been purchased in 1860 by Émile Ollivier, Napoleon III’s Prime Minister, for his wife Blandine Liszt, the famous composer’s daughter, and also the sister of Richard Wagner’s own wife. Belonging to the Conservatoire du Littoral since 1999, following the settlement of the House and Park by Madame Troisier de Diaz – Emile Ollivier’s granddaughter -, the La Moutte Estate holds each year the prestigious « Nuits du Château de la Moutte » music Festival. The Park is also renowned for its luxuriant vegetation, notably including a remarkable Phoenix tree palm grove, magnolias, as well as bald cypresses, which were planted during the second half of the 19th century.
It is in this Garden of Eden that Stefan Szczesny, an internationally renowned European Artist, presents twelve coloured sculptures, between August 1 – October 17, 2021. Created in a similar environment, quite near the La Moutte estate, in the plastic Artist’s own studio, or Atelier des Salins – itself anchored in a tropical garden – his monumental steel Femmes-fleurs, Bacchante and Odalisque merge admirably within the Château de la Moutte Park. For to Stefan Szczesny nature cannot be separated from his creation process ; his plastic language hinges around it. Thus his Femmes-fleurs are an invitation to contemplation, and to a dialogue with the history of this unique place, and with the generous environment which houses them for the summer.

This unique event, as held in collaboration with the « Les Nuits du Château de la Moutte » Festival, the Conservatoire du Littoral and the City of Saint-Tropez, is the first Exhibition by the Szczesny Art Foundation Saint-Tropez Endowment Fund. Its major aim is to publicize the work of Stefan Szczesny, both in France and internationally. The Endowment Fund aims to establish a Museum which would be dedicated to the work of this contemporary Master in the city of Saint-Tropez, to where he has moved since 2001.
