This handsome volume is devoted to the paintings of the Fauves, the group of French Post-Impressionist artists who, like the Impressionists themselves, owed their name to a dismissive epithet by a hostile critic. Fortunately, the Fauves had their admirers, and none more so than the Russian collectors Shchukin and the Morozov brothers, whose paintings are now divided between the State Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg and the Pushkin Museum in Moscow. This book contains colour reproductions of the most representative works of the leading proponents of their flamboyant style.
Natalia Brodskaya is an art historian attached to the Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg. She has made the Post-Impressionists her special subject and has written extensively on the Nabis and the Fauves movement.
