Picasso’s Pyrenees

Thursday, January 18 | 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm

About 100 years ago, a little mountain town in the French Pyrenees called Ceret became a center of Modern Art. Up-and-coming artists such as Picasso, Braque, Matisse, and Gris spent summers there, and it was there that Picasso and Braque developed analytical cubism.  After WWI, another wave of artists and writers, including Soutine, Dufy, and Cocteau descended on the town. During WWII, artists fleeing Nazism settled there, among them Chagall, Dubuffet, and Tzara.
