Paint movement: FAUVISM

“Banks of the Seine” (1906) by Maurice de Vlaminck



Fauvism is an artistic movement born in France at the beginning of the twentieth century. The movement as such only lasted a few years. The leaders of the movement are the painters André Derain, Henri Matisse, and Maurice de Vlaminck, they claim an art based on instinct.
Fauvism is characterized by the pictorial qualities, the use of strong color, pure and lively, even violent, the audacity of chromatic research, and the simplified forms, partitioned by very marked ou
tlines. This current can be linked to expressionism.
