"Zoom in" is the new offer around the permanent exhibition at the Villa Vauban! Every six months, you can discover the works on display from a new perspective.

For the first edition (from September 2021 to February 2022), we focus on the collector Jean-Pierre Pescatore, to whom the Villa Vauban owes a significant number of works.
Who was Jean-Pierre Pescatore, how did he live, why and how did he start collecting, and why are his works now part of the Villa Vauban collection?

Our thematic visits and conferences will reveal all the secrets around this exceptional 19th century character.

De Jean-Pierre Pescatore (1793-1855): en (on)typesche Representant vun der Bourgeoisie
Par Josiane Weber

Ee vun de bekannteste Lëtzebuerger bis haut, de Jean-Pierre Pescatore, hat a villerlee Hisiicht en aussergewéinlecht Liewen. Als Geschäftsmann, Bankier, Sammler a Mäzen ass hien zwar en typesche Vertrieder vun der héijer Bourgeoisie, wéinst sengem nonkonformistesche Privatliewen geréit hien awer a Konflikt mat de sozialen a moraleschen Norme vu senger Zäit. Ob a wéi dem Jean-Pierre Pescatore säi Beruffs-, Privat- a Familljeliewen de Krittäre vun de gesellschaftlechen Elitten am 19. Jorhonnert entsprëcht oder dogéint verstéisst, soll an dëser Konferenz thematiséiert ginn.
