We have been learning about different styles of art.  This still life is in a ‘Fauvist’ style.  Fauvism was the first new artistic style of the 20th century and when it was first shown in a Paris art gallery, the contrast to traditional art was so striking that a critic described the artists as ‘Les Fauves’ (wild beasts).  Fauves believed that colour and a strong pattern were more important than being realistic.
