Céret, recognised worldwide for the flow of internationally renowned artists, is a place where art is in the spotlight, hence its nickname the “Mecca of Cubism“. The Modern Art Museum in Céret was founded in 1950 by Pierre Brune and Frank Burty Haviland, both French painters. The museum/art gallery is one of the 100 largest museums of modern art in France. It presents works by painters who enjoy worldwide notoriety and dwelled in Céret, such as Picasso, Soutine, Chagall, and many other recognisable names.
To visit the Modern Art Museum is to absorb the culture these artists brought whilst uncovering a comprehensive collection of art from the past century.
