The simple expression of Color.

These are ten fauvist paintings. Fauvism is a painting style focusing less on details and more of expression through color. Fauvist artists use simple color to get to the emotional point of the piece.The point is for a simplified painting, where many times the colors of the piece draw attention flatness of the paper, while every object still plays a role. By Jake Pilgrim

This piece shows a woman sitting with a anxious look on her face. The darker blues and reds complement each other nicely, but the picture gives a dark, depressed feel. There is not a lot of detail involved.
This piece by Van Gough shows a blue of a bedroom. The blues are complemented by the light colors of the bed and chair. This piece gives more of a flat look, one that is typical of fauvist paintings.
