NBMAA Exclusives
The Next Generation: The Fauves...Those “Wild Beasts!”

Henri Matisse, André Derain, Maurice de Vlaminck, Georges Braque
Presented by Deb Wadsworth

Wednesdays, 1 p.m.
4 Week Series: May 1–22

As a continuation of our previous series Vive le Impressionists Deb Wadsworth is presenting The Next Generation; the Fauves… Those “Wild Beasts!” Once thought of as a minor, short-lived movement, Fauvism is recognized today as having paved the way to both cubism and modern expressionism.

Fauvism flourished in France around the turn of the 20th century, characterized by the use of pure, brilliant color and applied aggressively straight from the paint tubes to create a sense of an explosion on the canvas.


The lecture will include the life and work of Fauves, Henri Matisse (1869–1954), Maurice de Vlaminck (1876–1958), André Derain (1880–1954) and Georges Braque (1882–1963), who’s Avant-Garde work was literally unknown until it was exhibited at the Salon d'Automme in 1903 and 1904. Following the lecture will be an expressive arts project.

Cost $125 Members, $175 non-Members
