Derain, un fauve pas comme les autres
Derain began painting in Chatou in 1895. He "painted hot". So hot that his painting and that of a few others was given the name "Fauvism": the colours burst like sticks of dynamite. In this pre-war Paris where the painters were called Vlaminck - the friend -, Matisse, Picasso, Braque, Derain made a name for himself. Until his death in 1954 in Chambourcy, he followed a very personal path. His still lifes, portraits and nudes resolutely turned their backs on all the avant-gardes. His curiosity led him elsewhere: illustrated books, sculptures, sets and costumes for the stage.
