Between the months of April and July, the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum in Madrid open its temporary exhibition rooms to a retrospective show of works by André Derain, dubbed as "the painter of modern malaise". This is an adaptation, carried out by Tomàs LLorens, of the anthological exhibition organized the previous Autumn by the Modern Art Museum of the City of Paris. A selection of 55 paintings are presented in Madrid, which attempts to show the career of this versatile artist. Thus, the Derain fauve is presented first, the young Derain who was the heir to Gauguin and Van Gogh, the subsequent rejection of Post-Impressionism and the approximation to the work of Cézanne and the artistic manifestations of primitive people, his claim of traditional painting genres -still life, landscape and portrait-, the inclusion of the nude after the First World War, and the sombre vision that inundates the art of his final period.
