From Artcyclopedia:

Fauvism grew out of Pointillism and Post-Impressionism, but is characterized by a more primitive and less naturalistic form of expression. Paul Gauguin'sstyle and his use of color were especially strong influences.

The artists most closely associated with Fauvism are Albert Marquet, Andre Derain, Maurice de Vlaminck and Henri Matisse.

Fauvism was a short-lived movement (1898-1908), but was a substantial influence on some of the Expressionists
