Led by the artists Henri Matisse and Andre Derain, the official Fauvism Movement lasted only four years (1904-08), although the style of ‘Les Fauves’ (‘the wild beasts’) began around 1900.

Inspired by and retaining qualities of Impressionism, the Fauvist paintings were both simple and abstract, brough to life by bright colours and wild brush strokes.

‘The Hungry Lion Throws Itself on the Antelope’ by Henri Rosseau (pictured here) was not Fauvist, nor was Rosseau a Fauvist painter, but it is thought this artwork may have been influential to the Movement.
