Fauvism (wild beast)

Fauvism (Wild Beast)
Paris, France
1905-1908
I can only image what it would be like to be an artist at this time in history.
To be able to sit with these great artists and listen to their conversation.
Fauvism was the first major Avant-Garde art movement. From this short lived expression came the more modern art and developed into the Cubist art.
The Fauves created traditional art subjects by painting them in a nontraditional way. They used bright colors to express emotions. They were inspired by Van Gogh, Gauguin and Cezanne.
The artists of Fauvism were, George Braque, Andre Derain, Georges Rouault, Kees van Dongen, Maurice de Vlaminch, but the most famous was Henri Matisse.
Even when Fauvism went out Henri stayed true to it believing the his paintings were able to project passion and pure emotion through color.
With the new year ahead of me, and, my desire to go the Pairs. I will take a virtual tour of the Louve and seek out a Henri Matisse painting and reproduce one of his paintings. As a lesson as I go through my art history course.
Be Inpsired,
~Jean
