European Days of Crafts 2016

During the European Arts and Crafts Days 2016, L'Atelier designed a large event in tribute to the fawn painter André Derain.


The objective was to re-create the "Cage Aux Fauves".

HISTORICAL TOPO: In 1905, Matisse and Derain went to Collioure where they painted the first tan canvases. Returning to Paris,

they exhibit them at the Salon d'Automne. It is a real coup in the press. The art critic, Vauxcelles, exclaims "It's the big cat cage here!". Fauvism was born.


By collaborating with many artists, with Madame Geneviève Taillade (descendant and rights holder Derain), L'Atelier achieves a real feat.

A large panorama of the Derain house (Chambourcy) is exposed and made available to the public who can color it.
