Le musée d'Art Moderne
Drawn to the red roofs of this country town, its light, its unique atmosphere, who can be surprised at the number of artists who came here to work? At the beginning of the last century, the sculptor Manolo Hugué, the composer Déodat de Séverac and Frank Burty Haviland paved the way for so many artists to pass this way. Following in their footsteps came Picasso, Braque, Juan Gris, Herbin….living and working here, to the degree that Céret became known as the Mecca of Cubism.
From the artworks of Frank Burty Haviland and Pierre Brune, was born the beginnings of the Musée d’Art Moderne.
A donation by Picasso in 1953, 29 bowls on the theme of bullfighting, added to this collection.
Céret has always been known as a home to art.…our visual heritage, some might say…and, more and more, a name to be reckoned with in the world of Modern Art.
