Transcript of Fauvism

The Fauvist Movement Les Fauves....The Wild Beasts -Fauvists used bright, vivid colors to display emotion in traditional scenery. These colors were used before by Impressionists, though in fauvism, the details were basic, used with broad, messy brushstrokes. The colors were pure, often straight out of the bottle without the mixing of another color. These primitive techniques were a shock to the world of art. The early 20th century was time for new in the art world. The definition of what art was no longer exact. Though most movements had a more urban or technological approach to it. This included futurism and Cubism. Though, Cubism often focused on mass and new ways to define space. With the exception to Expressionism; The Fauvists stood out! VS Cubism Futurism Expressionism Fauvism The "founders" of the fauvist movement were Matisse and Derain who introduced the first exhibit in 1905 (Salon D'Automne). The movement followed Matisse until his death, bringing the movement to an end in the 1950's. Inspiration for the movement came from Van Gough and Gauguin. Female artists were not common during this movement. It's important to remember that this was during a time where women were not suppose to have a career; it was even before the women's rights movement! Matisse The world was constantly changing at this time. With World War One and Two, the Great Depression, Women's rights and more! Tragedy and change results in strong emotions, encouraging the development of the Fauvist movement. Though, it's hard to pin-point an exact event to trigger or encourage the Fauvist movement. According to Fauvists, the details do not matter; only the emotion you use in the scheme of color! Unlike the Post-Impressionists before them, Fauvists used simple scenes in nature rather than fantastic subjects -Women were a common topic for fauvist portraits (perhaps due to their movements?), therefore, the portrait on the right displays a common subject. Notice how the lady has a solemn expression, though, the colors are bright and vivid; displaying happiness. - Landscapes and traditional settings were common among Fauvists; therefore the painting on the left represents this well. The colors are intense showing life and strong emotion. Here (like all Fauvist paintings), the brushstrokes are evident and the details remain to be simple! Woman with a hat
