Who are Henri Matisse and André Derain ? What is Fauvism? What is the link with Collioure?

The path of Fauvism is a cultural experience in which you will live in the summer of 1905 and the luminous history of the birth of Fauvism in Collioure.

A fascinating exploration in an open-air museum which will allow you to understand how under this midday light, these painters made their colors sing to create works of striking colors, today known throughout the world.

The path of Fauvism is also the discovery of this village which "from one of the most important fishing ports of Roussillon" became during the 20th century, "The City of Painters".

The Tourist Office offers guided walks in the village, in the footsteps of the two great masters, initiator of this first great artistic movement of the 20th century. Follow this ""Fauvism Path"", punctuated with reproductions of their paintings created during the summer of 1905. Feel the emotions of the painters through the story of their biography, their immersion in the Collioure of the time. Follow the chronology of their workshops and discover the museographic study of their works.
