Fauvism, also known as "wild beasts" was a movement led by Henri Matisse. Many other French painters who shared common interests with Matisse focused on emphasizing color to communicate how the artist was feeling. Paul Gauguin, Vincent van Gough, and Georges Suerat were major influences of fauvism. The bright colors really caught my eye in this oil and canvas, Goldfish. Matisse used complimentary colors next to each other to make the oil and canvas appear even brighter. I also liked it because of the reflection of the goldfish that can be seen in the glass, making it very realistic.
