Wooded Landscape with Red Hills, by Berthomme Saint-Andre (1905-1977)

This vivid landscape, composed of highly saturated hues of contrasting color, is charged with an emotionally intensity that appeals to the viewer’s imagination. The impact of the Fauve movement is revealed in the artist’s choice of a bold, contrasting colors, while his jagged brushwork animates the pictorial surface and brings to a crescendo this view of an imaginary landscape. Signed lower left. Dated and titled on the back of the canvas. Framed in elaborate old gilt French frame.

"Saint Andre was born the same year that the highly controversial exhibition of the Fauve artists opened its doors to the Parisian public. The leaders of this movement, Matisse, Derain and Vlaminck, were coined ‘les fauves’, or the wild beasts, due to their use of vibrant colors applied in a seemingly haphazard fashion.
Saint Andre drew his inspiration from this movement, creating fantasy like landscapes and seascapes that appear to jump off the surface of the canvas. His application of broad brushstrokes of saturated color applied, combined with his use of angular forms to depict the subject matter at hand, create a pulsating composition that reveals intense emotional content as well as a keen spirit of freedom and individuality.
