donc sous la conduite de Matisse, et aussi sous l'influence de Van Gogh que les
futurs fauves, Vlaminck, Friesz, Derain, Manguin, expriment dans leurs envois

dynamiques des tons les plus crus.

rapport à la couleur qu'il s'emploiera à cultiver : le nerf du

French Fauvisme, style of painting that flourished in France from 1898 to 1908;
it used pure, brilliant colour, applied straight from the paint tubes in an
aggressive, direct manner to create a sense of an explosion on the canvas. The
Fauves painted directly from nature as the Impressionists had before them, but
their works were invested with a strong expressive reaction to the subjects
they painted. First formally exhibited in Paris in 1905, Fauvist paintings
shocked visitors to the annual Salon d'Automne; one of these visitors was the
critic Louis Vauxcelles, who, because of the violence of their works, dubbed
the painters "Les Fauves" (Wild Beasts).
leader of the group was Henri Matisse, who had arrived at the Fauve style after
careful, critical study of the masters of Postimpressionism Paul Gauguin,
Vincent van Gogh, and Georges Seurat. Matisse's methodical studies led him to
reject traditional renderings of three-dimensional space and to seek instead a
new picture space defined by movement of colour. Matisse exhibited his famous
"Woman with the Hat" (Walter A. Haas Collection, San Francisco) at
the 1905 exhibition; brisk strokes of colour--blues, greens, and reds--form an
energetic, expressive view of the woman. As always in Matisse's Fauve style,
his painting is ruled by his intuitive sense of formal order.
members of the group included two painters from Chatou, Fr., André
Derain and Maurice de Vlaminck, who, together with Matisse, formed the nucleus
of the Fauves. Derain's Fauve paintings translate every tone of a landscape
into pure colour, applied with short, forceful brushstrokes. The agitated
swirls of intense colour in Vlaminck's works are indebted to the expressive
power of van Gogh. Three young painters from Le Havre were also attracted to
Fauvism by the strong personality of Matisse. Othon Friesz found the emotional
connotations of the bright Fauve colours a relief from the mediocre
Impressionism he practiced; his companion Raoul Dufy developed a rather
carefree ornamental version of the bold style that suited his own personal
aesthetic nature; and Georges Braque created a definite sense of rhythm and
structure out of small spots of colour, foreshadowing his development of
Cubism. Albert Marquet, Matisse's fellow student at the École des
Beaux-Arts in the 1890s, also participated in Fauvism, as did the Dutchman Kees
van Dongen, who applied the style to depictions of the fashionable society of
Paris. Other painters associated with the Fauves were Georges Rouault, Henri
Manguin, Charles Camoin, and Jean Puy.
was for most of these artists a transitional, learning stage. By 1908 a revived
interest in Paul Cézanne's vision of the order and structure of nature
had led them to reject the turbulent emotionalism of Fauvism in favour of the
logic of Cubism. Matisse alone pursued the course he had pioneered, achieving a
sophisticated balance between his own emotions and the world he painted.
