It is in music, it is in jazz, that Galerie Orbis pictus celebrates the spring of 2022 thanks to an unprecedented musical collaboration with the French national radio FIP to celebrate 40 years of jazz on the air, a wind of freedom will blow with the exhibition of a selection of portraits by Jesse A. Fernández’ of the greatest jazzmen and jazzwomen: Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Billie Holliday, Eartha Kitt, Charles Mingus, Max Roach, Sonny Rollins… all this a stone's throw from the museum which houses the works of another immigrant, Pablo Picasso.

Jesse A. Fernández
Cuban painter and photographer of Spanish origin, long resident in the United States and then in France, Jesse A. Fernández, the friend of poets, made his living and gained his fame with his portraits of personalities. A great cosmopolitan and highly educated traveler, he felt at home everywhere. Disappeared prematurely in 1986 in Neuilly-sur-Seine, he leaves behind an astonishing collection of images, drawings, paintings and surrealist boxes of a third dimension.
