Never a fauvist painter ever again?
Since those great masters, no artist in the world has been known to use Fauvism.
I think its a bit much to say that, I've seen fauvist pantings painted recently. --Syr0 10:18, 1 November 2006 (UTC)

also, they misspelt colour!
- -Color can be spelled both ways...look it up.
Also Fauvism is alive today.
hi, I'm a brazilian painter, my name is Emerson Morais and I not agree with wiki, cause I've been seen recently in a class of our School of Fine Arts (Escola de Belas Artes) in Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (EBA-UFRJ), a painting in a style of fauvs, and, inspired for all these wonderful paintings, I'm decided to produce a watercolor inside the fauvs principles. So, the fauvism movement live inside all sensible artists, in idea or action, in their minds and hearts! fauvs forever! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 23:09, 27 September 2007 (UTC)
I think this article could still (2010) use a nice re-write. Also, I'm not entirely happy with the picture used to represent the style. And yeah, it is absolutely Okay to spell colour "color." Generally people who talk funny (like me and my mum) spell it colour. Gingermint (talk) 22:08, 15 March 2010 (UTC)
[snip - previous spoutings removed] My work and knowledge in this area is very incomplete and I have decided to withdraw my previous comment. - I understand the difficulty of finding authors who have deep knowledge on obscure subjects. Like many histories, it is often difficult to present a complete rounded argument and avoid a rather one sided picture. Anyway what I wrote before - probably rubbish.

There are some recent back-and-forth edits about spelling. There was even a commented note added at the beginning: "DO NOT CHANGE SPELLING FROM UK TO US. 'COLOUR' IS CORRECT. SEE WP:ENGVAR." I come to the article to find a mix of AE and BE spellings, beginning with the first sentence ("emphasized" and "colour").
Per the cited guideline, where (as here) the subject has no particular tie to any one English-speaking country, we achieve consistency by defaulting to the first variant used. Here, the first version of the article used AE spelling ("This brief, shining moment of in early Modernism emphasized paint itself and the use of deep color...."). Accordingly, I'm removing the commented noted and making the spelling consistent at AE throughout. Per the MoS, however, there's an exception for the quotation; it's presumably a translation from French, but the person giving the translation was English and the transcript was done for an Australian source, so our source uses "colour" and I've left that in place.
