Painter, engraver and sculptor, Gérard Garouste (born in 1946) often draws his inspiration from major reference texts. The Bible, the Talmud, or in a more literary register, Cervantes' Don Quixote, serve as an alibi for his complex plastic games where the audacity of shapes and colors is freed from the constraints of plausibility.

At the request of the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature, Gérard Garouste took an interest in the myth of Diana and Actaeon, one of the most beautiful recounted by the Latin poet Ovid (43 BC - 17 AD. ) in his Metamorphoses: Actaeon, an insatiable hunter, having ventured into a wood in search of freshness, surprises the goddess Diana while she bathes naked with her attendants. He, a simple mortal, dares to look with desire on the divinity who takes revenge by casting a spell on him. Suddenly transformed into a deer, he becomes the prey of his own dogs who put him to death.

The myth which deals with gaze, desire and capture had everything to seduce Gérard Garouste. Also, not content to satisfy the order of the Museum of Hunting and Nature, it has multiplied studies, drawings and paintings on this theme. Singularly, the goddess Diana resembles the painter's wife, while the latter lends her features to the unfortunate hunter. For the exhibition, all the works thus produced are gathered around the painting painted for the museum. They resonate with the old works illustrating this theme in the permanent collections.
