Henri Matisse and his partners showed up at the 3rd Autumn Salon in Paris with rough-and-ready, but very colorful paintings. In 1905 art lovers’ critics weren’t too positive, the works of Matisse and his friends actually shocked the audience instead it have impressed them. We can origin the expression, fauves or wild animals from this shock, after that the name of the style was born from it: fauvism. Nevertheless, modern painting would be very different from what we can see today without fauvism; moreover it was the 20th century’s first avant-garde endeavor.
