Un « curieux de papier » dans la Bretagne des Lumières : étude de la collection d'estampes du président Christophe-Paul de Robien (1698-1756)

Abstract : Unmissable figure in Rennes' cultural and intellectual life in the first half 18th century, Christophe-Paul de Robien was one of the great provincial scholars and collectors of his time. Amatory of arts and belles-lettres, passionate about sciences and antiquity, this Breton parliamentarian set up inside of his mansion in Rennes an incredibly diversified cabinet of curiosities. The image, and in particular the printed image, occupied a great importance at the heart of his curiosity practices. As part of an encyclopedic process of access to all of universal knowledge, the president de Robien was able to find in the print the ideal medium able to fulfilling his desire for possession, both material and intellectual. Today scattered between the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Rennes, the Musée de Bretagne and Les Champs Libres's library, this collection of prints therefore deserved a complete reconstruction in order to capture the several intentions that contributed to its development. This study will also focus on the relations maintained by the magistrate with scientific imaging and the illustration practice that he may have had for his own manuscripts.
