Le Musée de l'Annonciade à Saint-Tropez
The Annonciade Museum reminds us that the village of Saint-Tropez has been one of the most active centre of avant-garde painting at the beginning of the XXth Century, thanks to Paul Signac who, on board his ship called l'Olympia, discovered this little fishing harbour in 1892. He fell under the spell of the place, bought a house, la Hune, which he turned into his studio and invited many other painters to join him: Cross, Matisse, Derain, Marquet.
The Musée de l'Annonciade, created in 1922, reminds us that the town of Saint-Tropez was one of the most active centres of the pictorial avant-garde at the beginning of the 20th century, thanks to Paul Signac, who discovered this charming little fishing port in 1892 aboard his yacht the Olympia. Seduced by the country, Signac bought a house there and turned it into his studio, La Hune, and invited many painters: Cross, Matisse, Marquet...
The collections presented, ranging from 1890 to 1950, are surprising in their quality and homogeneity. All the artists exhibited based their work on a reflection on colour while remaining faithful to figuration.
This collection is made up of first-rate paintings, belonging essentially to the pointillist, Nabis and Fauvist movements.
It can be considered the first museum of modern art in France, since from the outset it has offered on its walls the most relevant works of living artists. The coherence and harmony of its collections, intended by its founders and its most important donor, Georges Grammont, are an exceptional example in France and in the world: in such a small space, major masterpieces of the history of French painting are brought together.
