Synonyms for Fauvist:
How to use "Fauvist" in context?
The word "fauvist" is derived from the French word "faubourg" which means "a district in Paris where theenfants of working class families lived." In 1881, Gustave Courbet exhibited his paintings at the Salon des Independants in Paris, and the term "fauvism" was coined to describe the bold and experimental depictions of life in the working class district of Montmartre. Fauvism is considered to be the precursor to Modernist art, and the paintings of Henri Matisse, Andre Derain, and Maurice Utrillo are commonly associated with the term.
