The Fauvists:

Henri Matisse, Andre Derain,  Maurice de Vlaminck, Kees van Dongen, Henri Charles Manguin,  Georges Rouault

"Henri Matisse and André Derain introduced unnaturalistic color and vivid brushstrokes into their paintings in the summer of 1905, working together in the small fishing port of Collioure on the Mediterranean coast. When their pictures were exhibited later that year at the Salon d’Automne in Paris, they inspired the witty critic Louis Vauxcelles to call them fauves (“wild beasts”) in his review.”  src
