Guided tour: Apollinaire, the vision of the poet

The tour aims to explore Apollinaire’s mental and aesthetic universe through a thematic visit: from Douanier Rousseau to Matisse, Picasso, Braque and Delaunay, from Cubism to Orphism and Surrealism, from academic sources to modernity, and from tribal arts to popular arts. It places particular emphasis on the poet’s links with Picasso and his links to his friend Paul Guillaume, whom Apollinaire introduced into the avant-garde circles, and for whom he became an adviser.
