Biography

Biography:

Maurice de Vlaminck, with André Derain and Henri Matisse, is considered one of the principal figures in the Fauve movement, a group of modern artists who from 1904 to 1908 were united in their use of intense colour. Vlaminck met Derain on a train from Paris when he was twenty-three years old and the two struck up a life-long friendship. As Vlaminck came from a musical family, he initially made a living giving violin lessons and evening band performances, painting during the day when he had a free moment. It is clear that this café environment Vlaminck and his friends frequented inspired the artist’s painting, as two of his renowned paintings were Sur le zinc from 1900, and L’homme a la pipe.

 

Vlaminck also painted many areas beyond the café interiors of Paris. In 1911, he travelled to London and painted by the Thames and two years later, he painted again with Derain in Marseille and Martigues. In 1905, he began to experiment with “deconstruction,” a modernist intake that turns the physical world into dabs and streaks of colour conveying a sense of motion. He was greatly influenced by the work of the Impressionists of the 1870s and 1880s, as well as the work of van Gogh. After 1908 his palette grew more monochromatic, and the predominant influence was that of Cézanne. His later work displayed a dark palette, punctuated by heavy strokes of contrasting white paint.
