  • Pablo Picasso is the founding artist of this movement.


  • “Fauvism was an art style that lasted only four years, beginning in 1905. The leader of this movement was Henri Matisse. The word Fauvism is French for "wild beasts.” It got this name because the paintings had bright and unusual colors. The subjects in the paintings were shown in a simple way, and the colors and patterns were bright and wild.”
  • A style of art where the artist paints using small dots only of a single unmixed color. The artist actually uses the eye to blend colors together by placing two colors next to each other.
  • Paul Seurat, La Grande Jatte, 1884.

  • “Surrealist paintings were generally based on dreams. Their paintings were filled with familiar objects which were painted to look strange or mysterious. They hoped their odd paintings would make people look at things in a different way and change the way they felt about things.“
  • Salvador Dali’s The Persistence of Memory.
