Noyers-sur-Serein, Musée d'Art Naïf
Son of the artist Kikoine and a painter himself, Jacques Yankel donated his extraordinary collection of naive and popular paintings. The poetic 18th century college houses these works as well as the rare curiosity box from Bresse and the views of some remarkable artists of exotic worlds (R. Nivelt and H. Farey).
Contemporary "marginal" artists leave their works there, as do painters who have stayed in Tonnerois such as Kikoine, Kremègne and others.

The collections bring together the old museum collections, including paleontology and numismatics (a bequest from Bresse, 1873). In 1987 and 1988 a donation by Yankel and managed by the Association of the Friends of the Museum of Naive Art of Noyers enhanced the core works with about one hundred pieces of naive and popular art (Bauchant, Bombois, Vivin and others).
