unique and unnatural color combinations in their paintings with the purpose of. evoking a variety of emotional responses in that sense color was used arbitrarily. and was subject to the painter s own emotional response to the canvas. DETAILED VIEW SECTION,Beginnings, In the opening years of the twentieth century Post Impressionist painters such as Signac. Gauguin Seurat and C zanne were considered the leaders in avant garde art. Collectively their experiments with paint application subject matter form and most. importantly pure unmixed color were the seeds that brought forth Fauvism. Henri Matisse born in 1869 was the oldest of the Fauves After moving to Paris from the. north of France in 1891 he began studying under the romantic Symbolist painter. Gustave Moreau at the Ecole des Beaux Arts Moreau s teachings were very influential. on Matisse who was taught that personal expression was among the most important. attributes of a great painter In turn Matisse turned away from using subtle hues of mixed. paints and began applying bright unmixed color to his paintings which introduced. considerable distortion, By 1899 Matisse had left the school younger painters who would later adopt Fauvism. such as Georges Braque Raoul Dufy and Othon Friesz were still studying there and. Andr Derain and Maurice de Vlaminck also important contributors to the style were. sharing a studio space in the Paris suburb of Chatou Separately these artists developed. similar painting techniques that included the use of broad brushstrokes coupled with. intense vibrant colors In 1905 Matisse invited Derain to visit him in the fishing port. town of Collioure in the south of France where he had made his home after leaving Paris. The two men spent the summer working there maturing their new painting and. establishing themselves as leading figures among the Fauves. Later in that same year the Salon d Automne held an exhibition at the Grand Palais in. Paris Included were several works by Matisse Derain de Vlaminck Albert Marquet and. Henri Manguin Although they received a tepid response from the public the paintings. on display were unequivocally distinctive particularly in their uses of bold vivid color. and heavy brush work In the exhibition was an Italian like bust by Albert Marquet and. its proximity to the Fauve paintings prompted the critic Louis Vauxcelles to describe the. scene as that of Donatello parmi les fauves Donatello among the wild beasts Hence. the group got its name,Concepts and Styles, The Fauves remained a disparate group of artists Their identity as a group only grew. over time and almost as soon as it was recognized they sundered Neither did they. produce a manifesto defining their artistic aims although Matisse s Notes of a painter. written in 1908 echoes many of their concerns, What united them was their explicit focus on the use of color as a means of emotive. expression Andr Derain once said I used color as a means of expressing my emotion.

difficult for a truly creative painter than to paint a rose because before he can do so he has. first to forget all the roses that were ever painted Together these quotes comprise the. basic tenets of Fauvism, The Fauves preoccupation with surface effects color and personal expression meant. that they were less concerned with the individuality of their subject matter The. Impressionists and Post Impressionists had concerned themselves with locating and. depicting scenes of modern life such as the cafes and alleyways of Paris and the. Expressionists would do likewise in the years to follow painting street scenes in Berlin. and portraits of prostitutes and other social outcasts The Fauves much like van Gogh. and C zanne wanted to paint what they saw and turn that act of painting into an. emotional and often spontaneous journey each journey was defined by the colors and. evident brush motions on the canvas,Later Developments. Despite some hostility from critics many of the Fauves enjoyed commercial success. following the 1905 Salon d Automne exhibit And additional exhibits were held in the. following years notably at the Salon des Independants in 1907 where the main attraction. was a large room dubbed The Fauves Den However by 1908 the Fauves were. beginning to go in separate directions Braque began to move towards Cubism Derain. also experimented with the style and Vlaminck darkened his palette. Matisse would also change direction under the influence of C zanne Rather than. focusing on color he aimed to create strikingly simple forms carefully balanced This. technique would be a major influence on Hans Hofmann and his development of the. push pull theory And the influence of Matisse on Hofmann would be important in. introducing Fauvist ideas into the milieu of Abstract Expressionism which was more. inclined towards Surrealism and Cubism Prior to this however Fauvism provided an. important example for a range of early modern styles and movements In particular it. impressed the German Expressionists led by Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and Karl Schmidt. One can talk about the Impressionist school because the held certain principles For us. there was nothing like that we merely thought their colours were a bit dull.
