Picasso's Pyrenees, or How a Town in the Pyrenees Became a Center of Modern Art at the Scarsdale Library

Date: Sat. 2 Dec, 2017 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Duration: 1 Hour

Elizabeth Kemble will talk about Céret, the small mountain town in the French Pyrenees that became a center of three periods in modern art, at the Scarsdale Public Library on Saturday, Dec. 2, at 2 p.m. Registration is required at the library website, scarsdalelibrary.org or by calling 914-722-1302.

Young artists including Picasso, Braque, Matisse, and Gris spent summers in Céret in the 1910s when Picasso and Braque were developing cubism. This group became known as the School of Céret. After World War I, another wave of artists and writers including Soutine, Dufy, and Cocteau descended on the town. During World War II, artists fleeing Nazism settled there, among them Chagall, Dubuffet, and Tzara.
