Picasso’s Pyrenees at the Somers Library
1:00 – 2:30 PM
About 100 years ago, a little mountain town in the French Pyrenees called Céret became a center of Modern Art. Up-and-coming artists such as Picasso, Braque, Matisse, and Gris spent summers here in the teens of the last century. This group became known as the School of Céret. After WW I, another wave of artists and writers including Soutine, Dufy, and Cocteau descended on the town. During WW II, artists fleeing Nazism settled there, among them Chagall, Dubuffet, and Tzara. Learn how this little town became a mecca for artists and the namesake of the School of Céret.
