Quimper celebrates Max Jacob - Stained glass window, theatre

The best homage that the people of Quimper have paid to Max Jacob is the fact they have left his mark on some buildings.

The stained glass window

In the college named after him, some pupils have decided to honour the poet by making a stained glass window bearing the effigy of Max Jacob, under the direction of the master glass artist Carles Robert. It was inaugurated on June 18th 1994.

This theatre along the quayside has recently been renamed Theatre Max Jacob. Max Jacob has placed this building in the centre of one of his novels, Le terrain Bouchaballe, name given to the piece of land where it was built.
