Andre Derain (1880-1954)

Derain was one of the founding fathers of fauvism, and one of its wildest practitioners. Influenced by van Gogh and working with Valminck in 1904 he felt that the impressionists had disintegrated their work into dots excessively. Instead, he chose to use wide, choppy brush strokes of pure color. In 1905, he worked with Matisse to bring the technique to maturity.
