Fauvism era paintings represent a departure from the strict interpretations of the genres that preceded them. Unlike the traditional ideals and conventions valued during prior periods, fauvist artists were drawn to the power of the colors on the canvas. Each painting was strongly focused on the colors being used and their composition, rather than being realistic. Our collection of fauvism paintings highlights many of the most noteworthy and respected pieces from the genre.
Although fauvism's reign as an art era was relatively brief (1904-1908), it is widely recognized as a period that was exponentially more influential than its four-year run would indicate. Notable contributors within the genre include Albert Marquet, Charles Camoin, Louis Valtat and a number of others. However, French artists Henri Matisse and André Derain are typically regarded as the pioneers of fauvism. Our collection of fauvist art includes a number of notable and less heralded names that represent the genre. These works encompass the most unique and appreciable qualities of fauvism.
The painting, its mounting and the company service all warrant repeat business.
Just received my first purchase and it's stunning! A magnificent conversation piece that will be prominently displayed above our mantel. The colors are true to the picture online. Skillful artistry...just amazing. I can't believe that I waited so long to buy this...I just LOVE it!
Great to work with, my purchase was better than what I expected - quality of the workmanship was very high. Will definitely purchase from them again
OverstockArt is user friendly. I loved that I could choose my wall color, the artwork, and try multiple frames for each one depending which room it was for. I also liked that there were 3 recommended frames. I purchased my artwork without difficulty. I received emails notifying me as appropriate and the art was sent within a day of receiving my order.
I recently discovered this company and have already purchased several pieces with the intent of buying more in the near future. Having been a manager of a fine art gallery, I know exceptional artwork when I see it and overstockArt has beautiful offerings.
I've purchased quite a few reproductions and always had great pieces arrive. This last purchase however there was ever so slight damage to the top of the frame. I called and it was picked up by FedEx the next day. Very kind, professional, and easy process. Thank you, I'll continue to order my art through you folks!
We ordered the Luxury Line version of Van Gogh's Cafe Terrace and we love it! It's well done, retaining the details of the original but with a little added flair from the gold paint on the stars and windows. If I didn't know better, I would swear this painting adds light to our room at night. I'm very happy with this purchase!
I love overstockArt. I have purchased 5 paintings from them over the years and love them all. Beautiful work, great prices, and quality customer service.
The paintings I received were exceptional in quality and the service staff were more than helpful with helping me arrange my orders. Will buy more in the future!
I ordered this painting to hang above the bed in the bedroom. It is more gorgeous than on the screen. The gold and the colors are so vibrant, the passion of this painting is amazing. Absolutely love my purchase. Arrived quickly and nicely packed with no damage. Very happy with my purchase!
