French artist Maurice de Vlaminck (1876-1958) was one of the main figures of the Fauve movement. The Fauvists included Andre Derain and Henri Matisse amongst their members. The Fauvists (‘wild beasts’) were known for their use of intense colour which at the time, was quite innovative (1904 – 1908).
Vlaminck was a very interesting artist and personality and led a vibrant life, as one of my earlier posts about this artist and the Fauves shows Here
