Maurice de Vlaminck
Maurice de Vlaminck; 1876-1958, French painter and print maker. Along with André Derain and Henri Matisse he is considered one of the principal figures in the Fauve movement, a group of modern artists who from 1904 to 1908 were united in their use of intense color. After serving his military service between 1896-99, a crucial turning point in Vlaminck's artistic development was a visit to a van Gogh exhibition in Paris in 1901. In 1902 the young painter met Henri Matisse, who encouraged him to exhibit at the 'Salon des Indépendents'
