Maurice Denis was a French painter and writer, and a member of the Symbolist and Les Nabis movements. His theories contributed to the foundations of cubism, fauvism, and abstract art. His images focus on the flatness of the picture plane- a starting point for the movement of modernism that was yet to come. The Maurice Denis Museum opened in 1980, and is located in the artist's old home in Saint-Germain-en-Laye.
