« back to classes page

Fauvism refers to paintings invested with a strong expressive reaction to the subjects portrayed.  These artists used color in shocking and almost violent ways, giving rise to their being dubbed fauves or “wild beasts” by critic Louis Vauxcelles.  This class will study Henri Matisse, Maurice de Vlaminck, Raoul Dufy, Georges Rouault, and Kees van Dongen, among others, in the journey to discover the origins of this first movement of Modern Art.
