Australia-Le Havre, l’intimité d’un lien

In its current exhibition (5 June-7 November 2021), the Museum of Le Havre highlights the close connections between its extensive holdings of manuscripts, artworks and artefacts, and the history of Australia, its plants, animals and indigenous culture. 220 artworks by Charles-Alexandre Lesueur and Nicolas-Martin Petit, products of the Baudin expedition to Australia (1800-1804), are displayed alongside museum objects and contemporary Australian creations.
