    World Wars and Savage Beasts: French and German Expressionism

    Saturday, October 9, 2010, 11:15 am

    Early French critics nicknamed Henri Matisse and his group of painters Les Fauves—the Wild Beasts—a criticism of their wild use of color and other aspects of their radical new painting style. While Matisse and his friends used expressive lines and riotous color to celebrate the joys of life, German painters simultaneously used them to express the uneasiness around them as their nation headed for war.
