Matisse-Derain, Collioure 1905 Un été fauve

Matisse-Derain, Collioure 1905 The fauve summer
From october 22 2005 to january 22 2006
Modern art
Why and how did Matisse and Derain, set up for a few months during the summer of 1905 at Collioure, dare paint in such a new manner that they became the main actors of the first artistic revolution of the XXth century, "Fauvism"? Some 100 paintings, watercolors and drawings from all over the world-among them many master pieces- present for the first time the artistic adventure that would make Western art swing into modernity. A remarkable exhibition and, in Matisse's place of birth, a museum that is worth the trip.
