Fauvism

1900 - 1910

Vivid, unnatural — the first avant-garde movement

"I cannot copy nature in a servile way, I must interpret nature and submit it to the spirit of the picture – when I have found the relationship of all the tones the result must be a living harmony of tones, qa harmony not unlike that of a musical composition." - Henri Matisse
