The leader of the Fauves was Henri Matisse. Fauvism, and Nonobjective art were the many styles that were used in famous paintings of the early twentieth-century. The name Fauves, French for "Wild Beasts was given to the artists who painted to this style because many critics thought they used intense colors in a violent uncontrolled way. However, Henri Matisse used color as a pure and sensuous pleasure. It was an escape and a time for a personal vision of his own. Another example of his work is Dance 1, here he uses color abstraction and captures the gay feeling of a Mediterranean culture which he was intrigued by. Many artists followed Matisse's views and art form until the decline of Fauvism. Developed in France, Fauvism was all about color and more color. Fauvism was one that was concerned with color, rather than space and motion. All of Henri Matisse's works demonstrate that he was the first to articulate colors and shapes as being comparisons to feelings and emotions. In his portrait of Madame Matisse also known as The Green Line, he uses flat color patches, extreme color radiance, and used a certain type of expression in the portrait that sends signals of a troubled, depressed, and fatigued image. Matisse along with other painters had to undergo a lot of criticism such as "color madness and "the sport of child. Fauvism was a short-lived movement, only 1898-1908, but had substantial influence on some of the expressionists.
