Artist Bio

André Derain was born in 1880 in Yvelines, France. Derain's formal art training began under Eugène Carrière at the Académie Camillo from 1898 to 1899. He is best known for his contributions to Fauvism and Cubism. His works often use bold colors that fragment in order to display depth and light in his compositions. André Derain has work in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts in Ghent, the Hermitage Museum, and many others internationally.
