“La Maison de Juliette” was owned by and named after Juliette Deshayes who was an artist specialising in watercolours and who also painted oil on canvas.
Juliette was great aunt to several of my friends in the village and aunt to another former Mirmande artist, Guy Marandet. His daughter Anne is currently showing an exhibition of his works in the “Grand Maison”, and whilst visiting the expo, I discovered a box of delightful postcards containing some of Juliette’s watercolours. I was absolutely thrilled to find these and happy to see some of the paintings she created in her atelier, which still exists in the house today.
