"Henri-Edmond Cross, a leading neo-Impressionism with Signac, is one of the painters who played a major role in the artistic revolutions of the early 20th century. At the end of the 19th century, the question of the pure color of the prism used in the keys is theorized and stippled rapidly advancing. For the first time, this exhibition shows the originality of research Cross and its influence on artists cats, especially Matisse. If Georges Seurat, the founder of Neo-Impressionism, even the art scene in 1891, two painters, Paul Signac and Henri-Edmond Cross, will put his theories into practice, develop and disseminate to young artists. Henri Matisse, looking for all the experiments on color, spent the summer of 1904 in Saint-Tropez alongside Signac and Cross. He learned this technique and followed the advice of Cross which he appreciates the friendship. He experimented néoimpressionnisme especially in the monumental painting Luxe, calm and voluptuousness (Orsay Museum). He will find the limits of this research but this step is essential to be born the following summer in Collioure by Derain in the company, what will be called Fauvism. The exhibition presents 73 major works by HE Cross from 1891 until his death in 1910. Co-production with the Marmottan-Monet museum and research conducted by Franc̨oise Baligand can expose paintings lent by European and American museums but also to show the farm, which belonged to morning Matisse (Museum of Nancy) next to the closes, evening (private collection). Cross is one of the leading watercolorists. The Matisse Museum will present 39 watercolors he painted Cross on the ground and watercolors painted by Matisse in Collioure to appropriate landscapes. The both of them have left to play with the light color of paper without force by a drawing. The exhibition offers a chance to discover first of the finest works of Cross (34 paintings) but which has never been demonstrated, its influence on Matisse, who in turn will open new fields in the color. Unlike Signac, he rejoices that Matisse is one of the painters who "will deepen the laws of optical mixing, not to surrender to them, but to break away." If Cross was instrumental in helping Matisse explored the contribution of neo-impressionism, in turn, prompted Matisse Cross to open up to other issues, including that of the line and dare the color tones in bold. This exhibition follows on the Matisse-Derain, Collioure, 1905, was a fawn, the Matisse Museum in 2005-2006 was organized with the Museum of Ceret. To understand how the neo-Impressionism Cross played a major role in the work of Matisse, the museum presents 13 paintings by Matisse, his first works on the ground in 1896 in Britain, the landscapes of Corsica, St Tropez Collioure but also works by Camoin, Manguin Valtat and Derain. We present the picture that Matisse had offered to Cross and his wife in 1905, tulips, parrots (the Albertina Museum, Vienna), painted in the pointillist technique very wide, and also important paintings beasts painted in Collioure: The Moulade (private collection), Street of the Sun at Collioure (Matisse Museum in Le Cateau-Cambrai). This co-production with the Musée Marmottan-Monet, Matisse Museum in Paris allows to explore a new direction in artistic adventures related to Matisse."--Transliterated from publisher's website
