The Joy of Life by Henri Matisse

The Fauves

Instructor: Marilyn Bauman, MA

Fauvism stands between pictorial illusion and the kind of "pure paint" that became a preoccupation of twentieth-century modernism. As Matisse later observed, "Fauve painting is not everything, but it is the foundation of everything." Explore fauve work and its influence on modern art.
