    Charles Camoin (1879 - 1965)

    Born in Marseilles, Charles Camoin met the young Henri Matisse while a student of Gustave Moreau at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. He became part of the circle of painters that formed around Matisse, including Henri Manguin, Albert Marquet, Georges Rouault, André Derain and Maurice de Vlaminck. It was this group of painters that composed the original Fauve movement. Fauvist principles required a total liberation of local color in favor of palette of unmixed paint used straight from the tube, often applied with firm, even violent brushwork. Forms are simplified and flattened, giving precedence to a patterned, decorative surface. While Camoin and the other painters of his circle had painted in this manner from their student years, it wasn't until his exhibition in the 1905 Salon d'Automne that the term “Fauves,” meaning “wild beasts,” came into use, coined by a prominent critic to describe many of the artists exhibiting that year. Camoin always remained close to Matisse, whose portrait he painted and which is in the permanent collection of the Pompidou Museum in Paris, but he also came to admire Cezanne, Renoir, and Bonnard, and drew influence from all of these masters of early modernism.
