A Postcard from Céret


In the second decade of the twentieth century a community of artists settled and worked in Céret, many moving from Paris, including Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Henri Matisse, Juan Gris, Chaim Soutine, André Masson, Raoul Dufy and Jean Cocteau. Le Musée d’Art Moderne de Céret was created in 1950 with the personal support of Picasso and Matisse and now contains a fine collection of paintings by artists who worked in the town.
