Galerie du Moulin Casse, Mauritius Overview

Art and culture have been an integral part of Mauritius. Photography and art enthusiasts find plenty of inspiration in the breathtaking landscapes of this paradise island. And where do you find the best of Mauritian art? Galerie du Moulin Casse is the answer!

Galerie du Moulin Casse is the new avatar of an authentically restored sugar mill in Riviere du Rempart, and it now exhibits the vibrant floral paintings of the famous Mauritian painter Malcolm de Chazal and an exquisite collection of photographs by Diane Henry. But what counts as the centre of attraction is the collection of more than 20000 terracotta pots interlining the vaulted arcs of the ceiling.

Tour of the Gallery

Also known as - the Broken Mill Gallery, the Galerie du Moulin Casse is the haven of Mauritian art. As soon as you enter premises, you will find yourself in a beautiful lush green tropical garden that surrounds the house, before you enter the building.

You will find the art gallery inside the building where two artists are permanently exhibited – nature photography of Diane Henry, contemporary photographer and vibrant works of Malcolm de Chazal.

Diane Henry specialises in capturing the grandeur of nature through the lens. Her technique of macro photography immediately catches your attention with its disproportionate beauty of nature. Diane is the daughter of the owner of the building. As you walk down the gallery, your eyes will fall on the fragile charms of her works – a starfish, a blooming flower, ashore – very clichéd subjects frozen at that moment. Most of the pictures taken by her are set in Mauritius and from her travelling venture to South Africa, Asia and France. Her artworks can also be found in the L’Aventure du Sucre Museum and Le Preskil and Le Shandrani hotels as well.
