Wild Beast Self Portraits

The second grade studied the Wild Beast artists in first grade. We revisited them while we made self portraits. Les Fauves (French for The Wild Beasts) were a short-lived and loose grouping of early 20th century Modern artists whose works emphasized painterly qualities and strong colour over the representational or realistic values retained by Impressionism. The example below is by the wild beast Andre Derain. The next three works are student creations.
