André Derain 1904 – 1914. The radical decade Member

from 04 October 2017 to 29 January 2018

Place Georges Pompidou - 75004 Paris

Le Marais - 4e Arrondissement



From 4 October 2017 to 29 January 2018, the Centre Pompidou takes a fresh look at the work of the co-founder of fauvism and explores the intensity of the artist’s work. The exhibition retraces the major stages in Derain’s career in the radical pre-war decade 1904 – 1914, which elevated him to the rank of one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. Exceptional pieces by Derain, from many collections, have been brought together for the occasion, including works he produced in the summer of 1905 at Collioure, his series of views of London and his large-scale compositions of dancers and bathers.

Centre Pompidou

The Centre Pompidou, designed by Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers, is a 20th-century architectural marvel, immediately recognizable by its exterior escalators and enormous coloured tubing. It is home to the National Museum of Modern Art and is internationally renowned for its 20th and 21st century art collections. The works of iconic artists are displayed chronologically over two sections: the modern period, from 1905 to 1960 (Matisse, Picasso, Dubuffet, etc.), and the contemporary period, from 1960 to the present day (Andy Warhol, Niki de Saint Phalle, Anish Kapoor, etc.). In addition to its permanent collections, internationally renowned exhibitions are organized every year on the top floor, where visitors can enjoy a breathtaking view of Paris and its rooftops. Everything you might need to spend a pleasant half-day, or indeed a day in the museum is available: eat at Le Georges, learn more at the public information library, and take a break browsing the shelves of the museum gift shop. At the foot of the Centre, the Atelier Brancusi presents a unique collection of works by this artist who played a major role in the history of modern sculpture.
