Les Fauves Art Prints

During the early, Post-Impressionist Twentieth Century, a group of painters who came to be known as Les Fauves artists, translated as "the wild beasts," started a short-lived movement called the Fauvism Art Movement. These artists emphasized non-linear qualities such as the impulsive use of strong colors, visible brushstrokes (not always applied in what would be considered a controlled manner), dynamism and other traits popularly referred to as "painterliness." These French Post-Impressionist painters included such noted individuals as Henri Matisse, Andre Derain, Albert Marquet, Raoul Dufy, Maurice Vlaminck, Georges Rouault, Henri Manguin and Georges Braque, who later played a major role in the development of Cubism.

Some great examples of les Fauves lithographs and les Fauves art prints are available here at Affordable Art 101, including works by the leaders of the Fauvism Art Movement: Matisse and Derain. Though the movement spanned less than a decade and held only three exhibitions, the amount and quality of the artwork produced is astounding.
