Complete work with 12 grisaille-paintings, telling the story of Cupid and Psyche, that has been created by the famous Parisian manufacture of Joseph Dufour in 1815.

RESTORATION OF THE PANORAMIC WALLPAPERS

Complete suite of twelve grisaille paintings telling the story of Psyche and Cupid, created by the famous Parisian manufacture of Joseph Dufour in 1815. This is the original and complete edition!

The regional commission for heritage and sites voted unanimously for its inscription as a French Historic Monument and vowed the classification by a majority vote.

Two of the twelve paintings are very damaged, a bookcase hides them now, for lack of restoration.

WALL FACING

The castle is completely covered with false brick masonry bond with lime on brick wall.

This choice was made in 1870 to harmonize the façades of the castle, that has been rebuilt on the ancient walls of the fortress. According to several experts, this parging has required exceptional technicality.

One hundred and fifty years later, it needs to be restored and the Fondation du Patrimoine (“Heritage Foundation”) accompanies us in our efforts.

Association of the friends of the castle of Garrevaques

Convinced that when one has the chance to own a place and documents of ancestors for eighteen generations, it is a sacred duty to bring them back to life, several descendants of Gineste de Bouffard-Madiane, have decided to meet to exhume and share the unknown treasures of their family home.

Open to all, our association wishes to transmit the history of the castle of Garrevaques and to contribute to the restoration and protection of the estate and its archives.
