As one of the events marking the centenary of the death of painter Ernest Hébert (1817-1908), the Musée Ernest Hébert in Paris and the museum in La Tronche are putting on an exhibition of Hébert's paintings of Italian peasants, a theme particularly dear to the artist.

The spirited models, dressed in traditional costume, have an almost "exotic" even savage charm.
