Suzanne Renaud – Bohuslav Reynek
A jewel of Franco-Czech cultural ties.
In 1985, the City of Grenoble officially expressed its interest in the Czech engraver Bohuslav Reynek’s prints and poems and the poems of his French wife Suzanne Renaud by organising an exhibition about them at the Madison Stendhal with the assistance of the Bibliothèque municipale d’Étude.
Since then, methodical work has been undertaken in France on the life and work of this couple of creators in close collaboration with Michel and Daniel Reynek, their two sons.
In December 1993 the non-profit organisation Romarin-Les Amis de Suzanne Renaud et Bohuslav Reynek was founded to pursue the goal, uninterrupted for thirty years, of preserving and enhancing a precious heritage common to the two artists’ countries, France and the Czech Republic.
