~  Andre Derain - (1880-1954)  ~
        Andre Derain was an important and influencial French painter, whose work evolved considerably during the first three decades of the 20th Century. He was a co-founder, with Henri Matisse, of Fauvism in 1905. However, just before the outbreak of World War I, Derain became re-interested in the works of the Old Masters, and the styles that he developed going forward increasingly were informed by classical and neo-classical art.
