Information on the activity

September 28, 2018 to August 19, 2019

A renowned illustrator and filmmaker who devoted his career to environmental issues, Frédéric Back made a poetic plea on behalf of nature and left a strong oeuvre behind, from the iconic L’homme qui plantait des arbres (1987), inspired by a short story by Jean Giono to Tout-rien (1968) to CRAC! (1981) to Le fleuve aux grandes eaux (1993).
With his unique approach, the artist conveys his beliefs in works that deal with environmental and preservation issues. The opportunity to discover a great artist of the humanist school and the park that proudly bears his name.
