Collioure in France

We have just come back from a week ‘En France’, taking photos and soaking up the local culture… a business trip of course!

While based near Carcassonne, we did take a trip down to the coast and travelled through some beautiful places.  One of the most stunning was Collioure…

SerenArts Gallery goes to Collioure France

In the early 20th century Collioure became a centre of artistic activity, with several Fauve artists making it their meeting place. Pablo PicassoHenri MatisseCharles Rennie Mackintosh, amongst others took advantage of the fantastic light and picturesque architecture in their work.  There was a host of galleries and exhibitions and even metal frames along the beach to look through and see what the artists would have seen.  I have removed rather a lot of people from the beach though! A very inspiring place for any artist to visit we would say.
