Fauvist Self Portraits

“Color was not given to us in order that we should imitate nature. It was given to us so we can express our own emotions.” -Henri Matisse

Fauvism Slideshow:

“The visible world is a great deal less interesting than the world re-imagined through color.”
-Andre Derain

“When I have color in my hands, I feel I can re-invent even the most traditional forms of painting.” -Maurice de Vlaminck

“When I put a green, it is not grass. When I put a blue, it is not the sky.” -Matisse
