ANDRÉ DERAIN 1904 – 1914. The Radical Decade

Until 29th January 2018, the Centre Pompidou, Paris, is showing the works of the French artist André Derain. The exhibition André Derain 1904 – 1914. The radical decade, featuring some 70 paintings, photos and prints from many different collections, focuses on the avant-garde career of the artist.

Along with Henri Matisse, André Derain was a co-founder of Fauvism, paving the way to Cubism, and experimented with new artistic trends throughout his career. He was a painter, a sculptor and a photographer, and it was in the pre-war period that he was most innovative in his work: pointillism, cloissonnism, vibrant even artificial colours. In the course of his travels, he tried out several techniques and painted his most well-known works, like the compositions on dancers, bathers and his series of views of London and Collioure.
