We’re not fauvists

We’re not fauvists

This is the theme that the Musée d’Art Moderne de Collioure has chosen for the exhibition currently on show until 18th May 2024.
For those who have not seen this exhibition, we really recommend it.

Collioure owes its reputation to the visit of Henri Matisse and André Derain in 1905. This trip gave birth to the first great artistic movement of the 20th century, Fauvism, making Collioure the crucible of a modernity that asserted the omnipotence of colour.
Both a premise and a high point, Fauvism set the tone for an artistic history that constantly looked to colour and light for the paths to new expressivity.
A tour of the museum’s collections will not tell the story of Fauvism, but of the legacy left by Matisse and Derain in Collioure and the way in which artists have seized on it, between devotion and iconoclasm.
