Fauvism was a brief but important art movement that followed the Post-Impressionist era. Fauvism was partly undertaken to explore new elements of art that had not been embraced by the Impressionists or Post-Impressionists. The most significant members of the movement included Henri Matisse, Maurice Vlamnick, and Andre Derain. The Fauvists implemented new ideas into their canvases. Each part of their paintings had loud colors, new primitive elements, and wild ideas. Although the movement only lasted four years, their exploration of new artistic value would change the direction of modern art forever.
