You may never have heard of Raymond Peynet but his whimsical artwork is lovely. We have several of his posters and cartoons in our home. We enjoyed this museum much more than the Picasso museum.

Although I quite like Raymond Peynet's whimsical style of painting and illustrating, the extra bonus of an exhibition of the work by French cartoonist/humourist Bosc was the icing on the cake. Witty, satirical social commentary at its best!

Here you will see nice romantic and satiric pieces - posters, illustrations, small sculptures, even chess. Leaves nice impression and interesting to visit. All comments are in French though.

I've never heard about Raymond Peynet before visiting the place and yet found this small (French only) museum very interesting. Besides fascinating Peynet's works, there are also exhibitions by other French caricaturists and it makes the museum even more fun to visit.

This small museum is like visiting someone's house -pleasant and peaceful. His works are happy, colorful, innocent as if you were inside a children's book. Vintage Air France brochures were great too.

Well worth an hour and a few euros. The exhibition is small but quirky and wish my french was better to fully appreciate the pictures. However we laughed a lot and will go again.they had peynet and Christianson on display with gosscini next month.
