André Derain was born in Chatou, near Paris, in 1880. He learned painting with the painter Jacomin and attended the Académie Camillo (Paris, 1898) . In 1900, he became friends with Maurice de Vlaminck and the two friends took up a joint workshop on the island of Chatou. He then painted realistic landscapes. The two men work together.
In 1904, Derain painted canvases in pure colors with the desire to free his canvas from any conventional and limiting contact. In 1905, he exhibited at the Salon des Indépendants, then at the Salon d’Automne, in the room known as “la cage aux fauves”. André Derain becomes one of the leaders of Fauvism. His themes are landscape, portrait, self-portrait. That same year, the merchant Ambroise Vollard bought the entire contents of his workshop from him.
Derain stayed in Collioure with Henri Matisse, and there discovered a new concept of light, applying a multiplicity of small touches of bright colors to his canvas. From 1907, Derain simplified and geometrized his shapes, applied more neutral colors, seeking to achieve a synthesis between classicism and modernity.
Derain was mobilized for war in 1914; he will participate in the fighting on the Somme, then at Verdun. His first personal exhibition was organized during the war, in 1916.
In 1919, Derain created sets and costumes for ballets. Between the wars, André Derain produced a more realistic, classic painting, referring to the old masters; he is always attached to his major themes (nudes, portraits, landscapes) , but also creates compositions of characters or bouquets of flowers.
During the Second World War, he was part of a trip by French artists to Germany (1941) ; although he refused all German orders or purchases, this trip will introduce him to a period of popular rejection in the post-war period.
In parallel with his painted work, he will carry out work illustrating books (Apollinaire, Rabelais, etc.) , as well as graphic work.
André Derain died in Garches, near Paris, in 1954.
