Charles Camoin (1879-1965) ~ Still Life ✿

Charles Camoin (1879-1965) French Fauvist painter, born in Marseille, belongs to this generation of artists who made the hinge between the 19th and the 20th century. Very close to Matisse, Manguin and Marquet, met during his stay in Gustave Moreau's studio at the Beaux-Arts in Paris, he participated with them in the "Cage aux fauves" at the Salon d’Automne in 1905.
From then on affiliated with Fauvism, he quickly enjoyed success, exhibiting regularly in Parisian and European salons. Even if Camoin favors expression through color in her work, she always remains attached to the transcription of the motif and its light variations. He was therefore undoubtedly "the most impressionist of wild beasts", as Bernard Dorival wrote.
After the war, Camoin divided his life between his studio in Montmartre and that of Saint-Tropez where he settled in 1921, asserting more and more his taste for a sensual, voluptuous and spontaneous painting, imprinted with the presence of Renoir to whom he also visited in 1918.
