André Derain. An Outsider in French Art
10 February - 13 May 2007
André Derain (1880-1954) was one of the most important artists in Paris in the first decades of the 20th century. With his close colleagues Matisse, Picasso and Braque, he was responsible for the most radical new directions of the time, and in the 1920s he was more successful and admired than any.
Despite this, Derain was an outsider who completely went his own way throughout his life. His controversial life work is comprehensively unfolded in the exhibition, which follows his life from the Fauvist works of his breakthrough years to the late experiments.
A life that was also closely interwoven with the history of Europe and two world wars.
The exhibition was donated by the Oticon Foundation
