    Through 21 engravings from 1928 of Georges Rouault's "Réincarnations du Père Ubu", made at the request of Ambroise Vollard, his dealer, to illustrate his text, the Musée Pierre Merlier offers a deep insight into the expressive universe of this immense artist through an intense body of work between tragedy and spirituality. Rouault began work on Les Réincarnations du Père Ubu in 1916 and completed his engravings in 1928. The book was published in 1932. Rouault shows us the cheat, the billionaire fool. For him, evil "is not so much the sordid and detested vice, it is to accommodate oneself easily to the physical and moral misery of others, and even to take advantage of it in order to repay oneself".
    Wood sculptures by Pierre Merlier, "Ubu Roi", in homage to Alfred Jarry, will be on display along with a range of other activities.
