    The Museum of Fine Arts of Carcassonne presents its second exhibition in the Petit Salon, dedicated to Jean de La fontaine. This special space, located in the heart of the museum, in the fireplace room, will allow visitors to take the time to observe three works. As we celebrate the 400th anniversary of his birth this year, how can we not mention Monsieur de La Fontaine, this essential character whose fables are known to all. The illustrators of his tales and fables are numerous. Whether they were painters of his time or contemporary artists, the writings of La Fontaine greatly inspired them. At the Museum of Fine Arts, two of his fables are illustrated by the painter Pierre Joseph Wallaert. The tableautins, The wolf, the goat and the kid and The bear and the two companions find today, a place of choice on the walls of the Small living room. Visitors can thus take the time to discover or rediscover them. Yvonne Gisclard Cau and Paul Manaut also sculpted the characters in the fables. A model made for a school group is presented in this space. To get to know Jean de La Fontaine better, the exhibition continues at the school museum, located in the heart of the Medieval City. She presents her life there, as well as her fables which have been extensively studied, recited and dramatized in the classrooms. The museum's collections house many objects, notebooks, films, vinyl records… related to the writer.
