Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

A leading founder of the Fauvist movement, Louis Valtat was an independent and versatile painter.  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. Although Valtat had painted in this manner for several years, it wasn't until his exhibition in the 1905 Salon d'Automne t (showing 500 of 15702 characters).
