SOLD - Carin is a French artist of the 20th century known for its pointillism style and is associated with Fauvism.


Fauvism is the style of les Fauves (French for "the Wild Beasts"), a group of early twentieth-century modern artists whose works emphasized painterly qualities and strong color over the representational or realistic values retained by Impressionism.


The leaders of the movement were André Derain, Henri Matisse and Georges Braque, whose members shared the use of intense color as a vehicle for describing light and space, and who redefined pure color and form as means of communicating the artist's emotional state.

The paintings of the Fauves were characterized by seemingly wild brushwork and strident colors, while their subject matter had a high degree of simplification and abstraction. Fauvism can be classified as an extreme development of Van Gogh's Post-Impressionism fused with the pointillism of Seurat and other Neo-Impressionist painters, in particular Signac. Other key influences were Paul Cézanne and Paul Gauguin, whose employment of areas of saturated color strongly influenced Derain.
