NEW YORK, July 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Othon Friesz's fauvist canvas, La Ciotat-Paysage (1907), on loan from Findlay Galleries, is now on view at that Nassau County Museum of Art in the show 'True Colors.'

La Ciotat-Paysage is one of very few true fauvist canvases that Friesz produced from his time in the South of France. The work was painted at the height of this short-lived Fauve period, and represents this powerful movement of vibrant colors within the timeline of the show. 

"We are extremely grateful to Findlay Galleries for sharing this wonderful Friesz Fauve work with the Nassau County Museum of Art," said Charles Riley, museum director. "It is a stunning representation of an important movement in art history, and we are pleased to be able to share it as a valuable part of the show."  Over 100 works, from Titian to Matisse, Rothko to Warhol, adorn the walls of the museum for the show, creating a history of color as a means of expression, and revealing the immense power color has to move and excite.

James Borynack, owner of Findlay Galleries, said: "Findlay Galleries has a long history of exhibiting Fauve works, and are honored to have the opportunity to be a part of this special exhibition. The work truly complements the rest of 'True Colors;' it is a perfect fit for the show."

La Ciotat-Paysage by Othon Friesz will be on view at the Nassau County Museum of Art as a part of the 'True Colors' show from July 20, 2018 to November 4, 2018.

About Findlay Galleries
Findlay Galleries is an iconic 148-year old family art business founded in 1870. Specializing in Impressionism, European Modernism, l'Ecole de Rouen, L'Ecole de Paris, and 20th Century American Art, the gallery represents over 100 artists and artist estates.

Called Wally Findlay Galleries since 1965, the business was acquired in 1998 by James R. Borynack. A longtime Findlay executive, Borynack was committed to the relentless pursuit of veritable European period works and contemporary artists, as well as expanding the galleries' prestige and following. In 2016 Borynack also acquired the David Findlay Jr. Gallery and merged the two. Since then, the gallery has operated under its original name from 1870, Findlay Galleries, and has continued to offer a strong collection of both period works and contemporary art, both European and American.
