Heard the Word! Fauvism

This comes from the French word “fauve” which means “wild animals.” This style had strong, vivid colors. This took the work of artists like Van Gogh and Paul Gauguin to the next level. The designs were simpler and a bit wild with the colors. Some artists of this period were: Andre Derain, Henri Matisse, Kees van Dongen, Raoul Dufy, and Maurice de Vlaminch. Germany had its own version of Fauvism called Expressionism.
