Fauvist Art counted cross stitch patterns
1898-1907. Fauvism was a movement in French painting characterized by a violence of colors, often applied unmixed, in broad flat areas, by spontaneity and a bold sense of surface design. It was the first of a succession of avant-garde movements in 20th century art. Fauvism grew out of Pointillism and Post-Impressionism, but is characterized by a more primitive and less naturalistic form of expression. Paul Gauguin's style and his use of color were especially strong influences.
The artists most closely associated with Fauvism are Albert Marquet, Andre Derain, Maurice de Vlaminck and Henri Matisse. Fauvism was a short-lived movement, but was a substantial influence on some of the Expressionists.
