Maurice de Vlaminck Art

French, 1876-1958
Maurice de Vlaminck was a French painter, best known as one of the spearheads of the Fauvism movement at the start of the 20th century. His reputation rests predominantly on his landscapes, though he also produced still lifes and portraits. Born in Paris in 1876, Vlaminck had relatively little artistic training and, as a young man, dreamt of becoming a professional cyclist. A chance encounter in 1900, however, when he was nearing the end of his national service in the army, proved fateful. It was with the budding artist, André Derain, whom he met when a train they were aboard derailed. The pair lived in the small town of Chatou, a few miles along the River Seine from Paris, and they chose to complete their homeward journey from the French capital that day on foot. They struck up a friendship, and before long were sharing a studio. Derain and Vlaminck would become, alongside Henri Matisse, the driving forces behind Fauvism, the first avant-garde art movement of the 20th century. Partly inspired by the recent innovations of Paul Gauguin and Vincent van Gogh, it was characterised by aggressive brushwork, simplified forms and intense non-naturalistic colours. Its name came from the reaction of a critic in 1905 who compared the artists to fauves (‘wild beasts’). Vlaminck enjoyed painting in primary colours, and is particularly associated with scenes set in and around Chatou. Standout examples include Restaurant de la Machine à Bougival (1905) (today found in the Musée d'Orsay) and The Seine at Chatou (1906) (found in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York). The poet Guillaume Apollinaire hailed Vlaminck as ‘the wildest of the Fauves’. In the years immediately before the outbreak of World War I, the artist’s style shifted. His palette grew slightly more sombre, and there was a greater emphasis on solidity and a landscape's underlying structure. This revealed the influence of Paul Cezanne — the subject of a ground-breaking, posthumous retrospective in Paris in 1907. Vlaminck worked in a munitions factory during the war. His paintings after it were much darker and more realistic than those with which he had made his name. He died in 1958, aged 82.

This woodcut was inspired by Vlaminck's 1905 Fauvist masterpiece of the same title in the collection of the Detroit Institute of Art. An impression of this image is in the Yale Univeristy Art Gallery, Condition: Very slight sun staining, otherrwise very good Image/block size: 13 1/4 x 16 1/4 inches Sheet size: 19 1/8 x 22 1/8 inches Reference: Walterskirchen 11b Maurice de Vlaminck (4 April 1876 – 11 October 1958) was a French painter. Along with André Derain and Henri Matisse, he is considered one of the principal figures in the Fauve movement, a group of modern artists who from 1904 to 1908 were united in their use of intense colour.] Vlaminck was one of the Fauves at the controversial Salon d'Automne exhibition of 1905. Life Maurice de Vlaminck was born on Rue Pierre Lescot in Paris. His father Edmond Julien was Flemish and taught violin and his mother Joséphine Caroline Grillet came from Lorraine and taught piano His father taught him to play the violin.[3] He began painting in his late teens. In 1893, he studied with a painter named Henri Rigalon on the Île de Chatou In 1894 he married Suzanne Berly. The turning point in his life was a chance meeting on the train to Paris towards the end of his stint in the army. Vlaminck, then 23 and already active in anarchist circles in Paris, met an aspiring artist, André Derain, with whom he struck up a lifelong friendship.] When Vlaminck completed his army service in 1900, the two rented a studio together, the Maison Levanneur, which now houses the Cneai,[6] for a year before Derain left to do his own military service. In 1902 and 1903 he wrote several mildly pornographic novels illustrated by Derain. He painted during the day and earned his livelihood by giving violin lessons and performing with musical bands at night. Vlaminck participated in the controversial 1905 Salon d'Automne exhibition. After viewing the boldly colored canvases of Vlaminck, Henri Matisse, André Derain, Albert Marquet, Kees van Dongen, Charles Camoin, and Jean Puy, the art critic Louis Vauxcelles disparaged the painters as "fauves" (wild beasts), thus giving their movement the name by which it became known, Fauvism. In 1911, Vlaminck traveled to London and painted by the Thames. In 1913, he painted again with Derain in Marseille and Martigues. In World War I he was stationed in Paris, and began writing poetry. Eventually he settled in Rueil-la-Gadelière, a small village south-west of Paris. He married his second wife, Berthe Combes, with whom he had two daughters. From 1925 he traveled throughout France, but continued to paint primarily along the Seine, near Paris. Resentful that Fauvism had been overtaken by Cubism as an art movement Vlaminck blamed Picasso "for dragging French painting into a wretched dead end and state of confusion". During the Second World War, Vlaminck visited Germany and on his return published a tirade against Picasso and Cubism in the periodical Comoedia in June 1942. Vlaminck wrote many autobiographies. Vlaminck died in Rueil-la-Gadelière on 11 October 1958. Artistic career Two of Vlaminck's groundbreaking paintings, Sur le zinc (At the Bar) and L'homme a la pipe (Man Smoking a Pipe) were painted in 1900. For the next few years Vlaminck lived in or near Chatou (the inspiration for his painting houses at Chatou), painting and exhibiting alongside Derain, Matisse, and other Fauvist painters. At this time his exuberant paint application and vibrant use of colour displayed the influence of Vincent van Gogh. Sur le zinc called to mind the work of Toulouse-Lautrec and his portrayals of prostitutes and solitary drinkers, but does not attempt to probe the sitter's psychology—a break with the century-old European tradition of individualized portraiture. According to art critic Souren Melikian, it is "the impersonal cartoon of a type. In his landscape paintings, his approach was similar. He ignored the details, with the landscape becoming a vehicle through which he could express mood through violent colour and brushwork. An example is Sous bois, painted in 1904. The following year, he began to experiment with "deconstruction," turning the physical world into dabs and streaks of colour that convey a sense of motion. His paintings Le Pont de Chatou (The Chatou Bridge), Les Ramasseurs de pommes de terre (The Potato Pickers...
