Fauvism: (1898 - 1908) Coming from the French word fauve, meaning "wild animals," Fauvism rejected traditional painting and  sculpture ideals and emphasized modern concepts, notably machines and motion. Inspired by the late  impressionist works of Paul Gauguin and Vincent Van Gogh who pushed the boundaries with their bold  color choices, the movement took this idea a step further to include simplified design. The first Fauvist  exhibition occurred in 1905. Pointillism and Post-impressionist inspired the development of the Fauvist movement. More specifically,  Fauvist’s work was derived from primitive and tribal art; also Paul Gauguin’s color choice and style.  Although the movement was short-lived, it had a profound influence on the development of the  Expressionists. The name Fauvism was taken from the French word the "fauves," meaning the wild  beasts. This title was appropriate because of their use of uncontrolled, abrasive, and intense colors. The

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
