On en-wiki, shouldn't this article be listed under the English Fauvism rather than the French Les Fauves. -- Solipsist 19:15, 16 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Never a fauvist painter ever again?[edit]

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)

It's a really crazy statement, particularly since there was a revival of the movement in the 60s. Gingermint (talk) 22:04, 15 March 2010 (UTC)

They made a stupid mistake[edit]

They put in the wrong type of picture!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! this was very annoying because i got an E5 because i listened to this page!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 11:02, 3 March 2007 (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 (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.

Kindly stop this nonsense.[1] Tyrenius (talk) 04:49, 30 December 2007 (UTC)


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.

For Coldcreation[edit]

Nadežda Petrović died of typhus and cholera in 1915 serving as a nurse in Serbian military hospital. She had not been influenced by Fauvism, because she had studied in Munich and had traveled to Paris only once, in 1910, to visit her friend Ivan Meštrović. By her style, she was the fauvist before les Fauves themselves. i.e. Salon d'Automne 1905. If the article is about a group of Parisiene artists called les Fauves, than it should not be titled Fauvism, but The Fauvists or Fauvism, the Movement. If it is considered a style, than there were more painters in Europe that belonged to it besides the proclaimed artists in Paris. Slobodan Grasic

@Slobodan Grasic: This article is about Fauvism, the art movement. Just as the article about Cubism is about the movement. Or, just as the article Impressionism is about the movement. (And so on...). Certainly, many art movements inspire a wide range of artists from a wide range of countries. Not all can, or should, be included in these articles. Also, many artists used relatively pure colors preceding the Fauve movement, such as Paul Gauguin or Vincent van Gogh, but that does not make them Fauve painters, nor does it mean their works were Fauve. Compared with the other movements mentioned above, Fauvism was short-lived and exceedingly restricted geographically. For these reasons the appellation "Fauve" has been historically restricted to a small number of artists. In the relevant literature, Nadežda Petrović is considered more inspired by expressionism than fauvism. Coldcreation (talk) 14:21, 24 September 2017 (UTC)
