Achille-Emile Othon Friesz, who later called himself just Othon Friesz (6 February 1879 – 10 January 1949), a native of Le Havre, was a French artist of the Fauvist movement.

Othon Friesz was born in Le Havre, the son of a long line of shipbuilders and sea captains. He went to school in his native city. It was while he was at the Lycee that he met his lifelong friend Raoul Dufy. He and Dufy studied at the Le Havre School of Fine Arts in 1895-96 and then went to Paris together for further (showing 500 of 2946 characters).
