Les toits de Collioure is a painting by Henri Matisse from 1905. It is an example of the style that Matisse employed during his early period of Fauvism. The painting has been in the collection of The Hermitage, St. Petersburg, Russia since 1948. Landscape at Collioure is halfway between the artist’s brief “pointillist period” and his more characteristic fauvist language. It depicts the Mediterranean landscape surrounding Collioure, a small coastal town in the Languedoc-Roussillon province, where Matisse had been established to work with his friend and rival André Derain. In other landscapes created in Collioure, such as “The open window”, Matisse used other elements to create a certain feeling of depth. But in this landscape there is nothing but patches of wild and uninhibited color, free and fully fauvist.
