A few words about the exhibition
During the summer, the curious will be able to discover the history of this character that is Claude Augie, a highly documented exhibition, relives his dizzying career, his life in the night … An extraordinary life, spanning the period from 1854 – in 1924, he was interested in music and photography , and was also a teacher, teaching mainly French and history, while co-teaching all subjects of the Preliminary Patent Program …
