Henri Manguin Biography

Henri Manguin studied at Paris's School of Fine Arts in Gustave Moreau's studio as Albert Marquet, Henri Matisse, or Georges Rouault. At that time, his artworks, which were close to those of the Impressionists, were exhibited at Berthe Weill's Gallery or the Salon des Indépendants. In 1905, Henri Manguin's artworks are presented at the Salon d'Automne in the room qualified by Louis Vauxcelles as 'cage aux fauves'. Ever since, he was recognised as a Fauvist painter. From 1906 to 1910, Henri Manguin travelled in the south of France as well as in Italy and painted numerous landscapes scenes for which he used vibrant colours and tones. Apart from these landscapes, Henri Manguin has often represented Jeanne, his wife, as well as still lives characterised by pure vivid colours placed one next to another without graduation. In 1950, shortly after his death, an exhibition was dedicated to him at the Salon des Indépendants.
