  • VLAMINCK, Maurice
    1876-1958






    Painter



  • Maurice Vlaminck was one of the Fauve group, and shared a studio with Derain. He wrote, played the violin, was a racing cyclist, and loved speed, crowds and popular amusements. He admired van Gogh in 1901, African sculpture about 1904, Cezanne in 1907, and denounced Cubism as over-intellectual and sterile.

    He painted chiefly landscapes of stormy weather, where the feeling is Expressionist and the dark shadows, strong light effects, and wild skies are rendered in a technique in which the slashing brush-stroke and heavy impasto are largely derived from Courbet - an artist whom he resembled in some ways.

    Most museums of modern art have examples.
