Little story of the mascarons: Carved ornaments of windows, doors, arcades, fountains or bridges, the mascarons are scary masks that chase the evil spirit or depictions of deities, elements, seasons displaying the attributes and temperament of a home. Coming from Italy, they arrive in France in the sixteenth century, and we can find many in Paris, Strasbourg, Bordeaux, Nantes ... I found interesting to reinterpret in painting these forgotten jewelry of the Renaissance and to show that they can have their place in our modern life.
