Colour and Distortion – Fauvism


  • Bright, block colours
  • Organic lines
  • Nature
  • Curved lines
  • Limited pallet yet vibrant
  • Simplified
  • Conveying emotion through the use of colour
  • Rejected cold colours at the back of an image and the warm colours at the front
  • Used intense colours to describe the light and space in an image
  • Painting is an emotional and spontaneous journey
  • Painting your emotions onto a canvas 

This picture painted by Henri Matisse, a well known artist in the Fauvism moment
