Fauvism

Fauvism is an artistic movement employing intense, aggressive colors, as well as chromatic experimentation. It first appeared in France at the turn of the 20th Century thanks to the works of a small circle of artists, such as Henri Matisse, André Derain, and Maurice de Vlaminck.

Fertile notably between 1905 and 1907, the Fauvist movement is difficult to describe, as it was connected with no particular doctrine. However, it is characterized by the use of pure colors, virtually applied right out of the tube, and by the representation of movements and depth thanks to sharp juxtaposition of colors.

The Fauvists were mainly interested in landscapes and the extolling of color.
