Giant bronze sculptures of Bourdelle, placed at the foot of a dungeon of the fourteenth, a large golden apple a little further, near a donkey. The estate of Vez marries with modern happiness and old. In the gardens, contemporary art sublimates the medieval. Or vice versa. On the lawn as well as the size of the trees, rest with majesty of the monumental, and smaller animals of François-Xavier Lalanne. The temporary exhibition of this artist (until September 30) invites you to sit on sheep, wild boars, a chair carved in turtledoves. The artist drew on animals to create a sculpture of pleasure, a bestiary, which was already found in the Middle Ages on religious buildings.
Behind the chapel, in the main courtyard, a huge gardener's gold pot seems to float on a mirror of water. This pool, created to magnify the work of Jean-Pierre Raynaud, offers a perpetual play of lights according to the sun. The same pot, more imposing, is exposed on the terrace of the Pompidou Center.
Set back, a minimalist garden offers vegetable quatrefoils, emblematic forms of the Middle Ages. Labeled remarkable, it is signed Pascal Cribier, landscape gardener of the Tuileries Garden. It is organized as at that time: the perspective does not exist, the game is about variations of volumes and heights. Wooden armchairs, in the shape of turtledoves, offer a moment of rest to look at it.
From Viollet-le-Duc to Buren via Eiffel
Monumental, the 27 m dungeon, like the neighboring chapel, were built in 1360 by Jehan de Vez. The whole will go through successive renovations. Leon Dru, owner at the end of the nineteenth century and industrial civil engineer, will launch heavy restoration work. He calls on Viollet-le-Duc who will redraw large battlements on the watchtower, still in place.
In the restored and luminous chapel, one climbs three floors, crossing works on each level. We discover two Beethoven Bourdelle, we admire the recumbent white marble Leon Dru and his wife, sculpted by Emmanuel Frémiet. Daniel Buren has designed on the glass roofs colored bands, like a symbol of stained glass, which throws yellow, blue, red lights on the ground. A wooden boat, overflowing with oars, created by a Cuban artist, catches the eye. In the attic, the frame maintained by a metal frame of Gustave Eiffel impresses.
The gardens are also admired in height, from the ramparts, with a magnificent view of the surrounding nature. After this soothing stroll, one can sip a drink between the walls of the medieval fortress, admiring Bourdelle's horse's head from the window. Without worrying about the skeleton head, carved by an Indian artist, who sneers in our backs.

WE MEET … A squire auctioneer
I did not want to become another artist, locked up with my collections. I wanted to share with a wide audience. What matters to me is not so much the possession as the use of the works. Auctioneer Francis Briest co-founded the Artcurial auction house. Thirty years ago, he bought the Vez estate "for the price of a Parisian maid's room". A mouthful of bread that engulfs the double bites in terms of maintenance, restoration, beautification.
His leitmotiv, which he carries as a priesthood, is to "magnify art in the heart of historic places that deserve not to die." Sprinkling his favorite artists in his property delivers keys to access concepts that are sometimes very … conceptual. "By staging the works, I dramatize them. "
Visitors are "lucky to be able to touch" the fifteen or so works of Lalanne in the gardens and the chapel. "After their stay here, they will be put at a distance, in museums and exhibitions around the world. This lover of art lives in Paris and comes to Vez to recharge his batteries, to breathe. He does not hesitate to answer visitors' questions, to show and explain the works. "I feel here at the end of the world, protected by my artist friends. "
DISCOVER … A timeless salon
The Vez dungeon opens every year during the summer. For the first time, daily guided tours allow you to enter the privacy of owner Francis Briest. A place of life dressed as a museum. The living room, out of time, swarms with a thousand objects. Religious paintings flirt with cubist canvases and a Beauvais tapestry from the 17th century.
The centuries are juxtaposed through art. A large stuffed Lappish owl widens its eyes near a Roman emperor's head in white Carrara marble. We find a drawing of the daughter of Lionel Jospin above the desk. Art magazines and beautiful cars are piled up on the coffee table, in the middle of upholstered armchairs Napoléon III.
Unlike gardens with minimalist lines, the living room is loaded with little treasures. On a late 18th century secretary is a collection of flint stones from prehistory. During this visit, visitors will also visit a dining room decorated by Sol LeWitt. Geometric shapes with primary colors cover all the walls, like a fresco. There slides a statue of Saint-Barbe of XIVe. An echo of the Middle Ages. In the kitchen, a slab of glass materializes the access to the oubliettes. Because we forget, in this colorful journey, the thousand influences, that we are in a dungeon inhabited by Joan of Arc, in 1430, to monitor the arrival of the Burgundians.
