'Fauvism' was the first 'Modern Art Movement' of the 20th century. Although short lived, from 1905-1908, 'Fauvism' was a significant learning period for many artists. The leaders of this movement were Henri Matisse & AndrĂ© Derain, followed by Maurice de Vlaminck, Georges Braque, Georges Rouault, & Raoul Dufy. These artists were obsessed with color believing it to be a powerful, emotive tool. They wanted their paintings to be a medium of expression rather than just being a simple reproduction of a scene.  The last two paintings here are from 1911 & have become more representational.
