DESCRIPTION: 

Picasso, Dufy, Matisse and Derain were all to paint in Collioure, the small French town 15 kilometres from the Spanish border, where Henri Martin bought asecond home in 1923. The locale’s wide sea views and dramatic light enticed the artist finally, not just to visit, but settle in the small vineyard-surrounded fishing village at the foot of the Pyrenees. The seascape at Collioure was a constant in Martin’s work from this period.
