Paul Signac, Sur l'émail d'un fond rythmique de mesures et d'angles, de tons et de teintes, Portrait de M. Félix Fénéon en 1890, Opus 2171.
 
Félix Fénéon en 1901 par Maximilien Luce.
Félix Fénéon est un critique d'art, journaliste et directeur de revues français, né à Turin (Italie) le 22 juin 1861 et mort à Châtenay-Malabry (Hauts-de-Seine) le 29 février 1944. Anarchiste, il est inculpé, en 1894, lors du procès des Trente

The latter is elected president of the Republic in 1995. As soon as he arrived at the head of the State, he askes for the opening of a primitive art department at the Louvre museum. One year later he announced the project of creation of a new museum, which quickly meet an opposition, especially  with a strike of the personnal of the Man museum in 1999, to stand in the way of the disassembly of the museum’s collections and criticize the primacy of the aesthetic choice instead of the scientific factors.

An architecture competition is sent out in 1999, designating Jean Nouvel as the architect.

This museum is unveiled the 20th of June 2006 by Jacques Chirac, in the presence of Kofi Annan, Rigoberta Menchú, Paul Okalik, Dominique de Villepin, Lionel Jospin and Jean-Pierre Raffarin.
