Maurice de VLAMINCK (1876-1958) is considered to be the founder of the fauvist movement, one of the first artists who brought African Art to the attention of the public and a loyal follower of Paul Cézanne. The first years of his career are separated into two distinct periods that translate into two volumes prepared under the direction of Maïthé Vallès-Bled. The first volume, published in May 2008, is dedicated to his fauve period of 1900-1907 and comprises 211 paintings as well as 148 ceramics. The second volume pertaining to his Cézanne period, which extends into 1916, will include close to one thousand works. After World War I, Vlaminck turned toward a more classical aesthetic while continuing to paint his favorite themes: landscapes and still lifes. In 1925, he moved close to Chartres where, surrounded by his family, he continued to paint until his death.
