MUSEE DES EMAUX ET DE LA MOSAIQUE (MEMO)

BRIARE - 45

Also the former residence of Jean-Félix Bapterosses, the museum displays countless collections of beautiful 19th and 20th century mosaics of Eugène Grasset and Victor Vasarely. You will be immersed in the social, economic, political and cultural history of France over the last two centuries, by retracing the history of the manufacture of Briare, through the production of earthenware, pearls, buttons and enamels (mosaics), as well as archive documents, machines and a film about enamel production. Formerly known as the "city of pearls", Briare continues to develop on an international scale, with its prestigious products used in major projects (Olympic-size swimming pools, airports, luxury hotels, train stations, metro stations...).

Emaux de Briare was founded by Jean-Félix Bapterosses, a new industry developing the production of mosaics, pearls and buttons. Here you can discover countless collections, 19th century mosaics by E Grasset and 20th century mosaics by Vicha Vasarely. A visit to the museum will allow you to fully appreciate the contrasts and complexity of the last two centuries.
