Céret - This small charming village with Plantain tree lined streets much beloved by artists including Picasso, Matisse and Herbin, is best known for its Museum of Modern Art and of course, its cherries. There is a market every Saturday which over the years has become quite the event with stalls filled with local produce. During the summer months (July to end of August) there is also an evening market every Tuesday dedicated to artisanal products (arts and crafts).
Musée d'Art Moderne of Céret
Alain Clément - exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art in Céret from 11 February to 14 May 2017.
Born in 1941 in Neuilly-sur-Seine, Alain Clément lives and works in Paris and Nimes. His current work is the fruit of a long journey at the same time theoretical and gestural. Engraver and lover of books and poetry, he was close to the avant-garde and radical proposals of Supports / Surfaces in the 70's. Since the 1980s, the artist has developed a colorful abstract painting that testifies to a constant search between lyrical abstraction and the rigor of construction.
The exhibition of the Museum of Modern Art at Céret, favors the large colored canvases of the last years, compared with wall reliefs and sculptures - some of them monumental - towards which the painter / sculptor has oriented his research.
