The Fauves

 

 

 

 

 

 

André Derain Regent Street, London

The wild beasts exploded were all about colour. They followed on the post impressionists such as van Gogh, Gaugin and Cezanne in the early 20C . all can be seen as expressionists but the fauves burnt brightly for a short while taking colour to extreme places. Matisse, Derain and many other uses expressive brush strokes with outlandish colour combinations.
