Fauvist

Fauvism was an early twentieth century art movement and style of painting in France. The name Fauves, French for "Wild Beasts," was given to artists adhering to this style because it was felt that they used intense colours in a violent, uncontrolled way. The leader of the Fauves was Henri Matisse (French, 1869-1954). (Artlex.com)
