A painter and an inventor, Eugène Frey (1863-1930) pioneered techniques of animated sets for the theatre at the same time period as the cinema was invented. While he is contextualized beside the creations of Loie Fuller, Georges Méliès, or Lotte Reiniger, he is reinterpreted by the artist João Maria Gusmão. This first publication devoted on the work of Eugène Frey accompanies the exhibition at the New National Museum of Monaco, presenting texts by Stéphane Tralongo (University of Lausanne) and Laurent Mannoni (Cinémathèque française), as well as a work of fiction by João Maria Gusmão.
