Born at the dawn of the 20th century, Fauvism burst in 1905 Salon drs"Automne with a resounding scandal. It was like throwing colors at the face of the academic art entangled in its ancestral conventions. Then several artists, like Matisse, Derain or Vlaminck, searched for a new chromatic language by diverting the color from its signified. Freed from any connotation, applied in flat tints, the color, they claimed as their only standard, impregnated their stunning paintings. The author invites us to this ball of vivid and bold colors, and shows us how the violence of the Fauves left its mark on the path to modernity.
Since 1961, Nathalia Brodskana is curator of the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg. The author has published monographs on Rousseau, Renoir, Derain, Vlaminck and Van Dongen. She has also written other titles on the Fauves. She currently devotes her time to researching the French painters of the beginning of the 20th century.
