Book Description

Born at the dawn of the 20th century, Fauvism burst in 1905 Salon d'Automne with a resounding scandal. It was like throwing colors at the face of the academic art entangled in its ancestral conventions. Then several artists, like Matisse, Derain or Vlaminck, searched for a new chromatic language by diverting the color from its signified. Freed from any connotation, applied in flat tints, the color, they claimed as their only standard, impregnated their stunning paintings. The author invites us to this ball of vivid and bold colors, and shows us how the violence of the Fauves left its mark on the path to modernity.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good photos October 29, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The pictures were clear & with good color, and this is what I wanted. Some art books have pictures in black & white, why even bother.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully illustrated... February 1, 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Almost every page contains a full page, beautiful color reproduction. Of course, Matisse is the most heavily represented
of the group, but other fauves aren't given short shrift. Derain, Marquet, Dufy and others are given sufficient coverage.
The author provides a brief and readable history of the movement. All in all, it's an excellent introduction to fauvism.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worked for me June 2, 2013
By Anna S
This book is great as an introduction to Fauvism. It contains many artists from the movement (both well known and less so) and the pictures look great on the page. I especially loved the paintings by Raoul Dufy, who I'd not encountered until I bought this. The text is also helpful to beginners.

Maybe not for Fauvism experts, but I thought it served as a beautiful introduction to a collection of great artists.
