Andre Derain, Portrait de femme au foulard, c. 1934-1939(115 views)
Description: Andre Derain, 1880-1954, was a French painter who was a founding member of the Fauvist movement in the early 20th century. He worked closely with contemporaries like Vlaminck and Matisse, showing their radically innovative paintings at the Salon d'Automne. Derain's later work features more subtle tones and subjects such as portraiture and still life. The role of color was reduced and the forms became austere. Inspired by his friendship with Pablo Picasso, Derain's later post-Fauve works show an engagement with both classicism and Cubism, and this 'classical' style earned him widespread recognition throughout Europe and the US. His work is in private and public collections and many acclaimed museums worldwide. This particular painting is a wonderful example of Derain's late work. Here, he features a beautiful, classical portrait of a woman. It bears his signature in the lower right corner; and the painting is also listed and included in the Catalog Raisonne of Derain's works, as well: Michel Kellermann, Andre Derain: Catalogue Raisonne de l'oeuvre peint, vol. III, Paris, 1999, no. 1714, p. 95, illustrated.
