ANDRE DERAIN (French / 1880-1954)

André Derain was the son of a baker, and destined to become an engineer, but at the age of fifteen he started taking art lessons. By 1898 Derain was studying under Eugène Carrière, and it was at Carrière’s studio that he first met Henri Matisse, who was to be his lifelong friend. Two years later, on a train, he met and befriended Maurice de Vlaminck. As one of the founders of Fauvism, alongside Matisse, de Vlaminck, Braque. Marquet and Friesz, André Derain has an important place in the history of modern art.
