Portrait of Madame Matisse Matisse

Les Fauves, “the wild beasts” is an artistic group that began in the early twentieth-century from 1904–1908 that emphasized strong, bright color over realism using wild brush strokes. The subjects of the pieces were simplistic and abstract, a mode of Expressionism. The leaders of the movement were Henri Matisse and Andre Derain.
