Mountains at Coullioure
André Durain, "Mountains at Coullioure", 1905, oil on canvas at the National Gallery of Art.
André Derain was a French artist, painter, sculptor and co-founder of Fauvism with Henri Matisse.
"Fauvism is the style of les Fauves (French for "the wild beasts"), a loose group of early twentieth-century modern artists whose works emphasized painterly qualities and strong color over the representational or realistic values retained by Impressionism." ~ Wikipedia
