A Postcard from Collioure


In the summer of 1905 Henri Matisse and André Derain stayed and worked together in Collioure, in south-west France, near the Spanish border, developing what became known as the Fauvist style. They painted views of the town, the boats in the harbour, portraits of each other, and Matisse painted ‘The Open Window’.
