Born in Chatou, France in 1880, André Derain was a French painter, sculptor, theatrical designer, and print-maker who had a major role in the development of two of the most significant artistic movements of the early-20th century. While studying painting under Eugène Carrière at the Académie Camillo in Paris, Derain befriended his classmate Henri Matisse. He and Matisse, in association with Maurice de Vlaminck, co-founded a new style which would become Fauvism. These early Fauve works were influenced by Gauguin painting, with bold, vibrant colors and simplification of form. Derain painted early examples of Fauvism that served as a precursor to works by Kandinsky and other Expressionists. Derain’s later association with Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque was integral to the development of early Cubism. Today, André Derain is recognized as one of the most influential Western artists of the 20th century. His artwork belongs to permanent collections of many prestigious international institutions, including the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim in New York, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Hermitage Museum of St. Petersberg, and the Tate Gallery in London.
