5 Rue Violette, 84000 Avignon, France

The Collection Lambert

The Collection Lambert opened its doors in 2000, as part of the Avignon, European Capital of Culture programme. Yvon Lambert, a gallery owner and art collector, decided to store his personal collection in the Hôtel de Caumont, an old town house dating from the 18th century.

Begun in the 1960s, the Collection Lambert represents the tastes, desires and passions of its unique collector: an art dealer since this period, Yvon Lambert battled the academicisms of the French fine arts world that refused since the end of the war to recognize that the centre of artistic creation was no longer the Paris of its glory years, but rather triumphant America.
