About The Artist:

Kees Van Dongen was born in Delfshaven, Netherlands, in 1877. In 1892, at age 16, Van Dongen attended Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Rotterdam. In 1897, after Van Dongen completed his formal education, he moved to Paris. At the age of 20 he became immersed in the bohemian lifestyle of urban France. He began to exhibit in Paris, and became acquainted with Henri Matisse. After seeing Matisse_s pieces Van Dongen began to focus highly on the use of concentrated colour. Van Dongen was asked to participate in in the controversial 1905 exhibition Salon d'Automne. This exhibition became famous for uniting a group of avante-garde painters under the title ÒLes FauvesÓ (the wild beasts). These artists used pure colour and emotive brushwork in a way which shocked critics. Van Dongan was contracted by Picasso_s art dealer, Daniel-Henry Kahnweiler in 1907. His work was highly successful and the he developed a reputation as a society artist. He would throw lavish studio parties and meet many of the top artists and politicians in Paris. Von Dongan also briefly participated in the German Expressionist movement ÒDie BrŸckeÓ (ÒThe BridgeÓ) in 1968. Van Dongen Died May 28, 1968 in Monte Carlo, at the age of 91.
