This beauty kinda inspired me to show you some beautiful polishes

Fauvism II

Some of you don't know much about Fauvism and that's why I want to explain "the base" to you. But I'm not an expert, we've recently seen the movement so I just tell about the things I know at the moment.

Origin:
It all started with an exhibition in France: Salon d'Automne (1905).
This was a large hall with in the middle a bust and Fauvistic works around it. An artcritic said something about it: "La candeur de ce buste surprend au milieu de l'orgie des tons purs: Donatello parmi les fauves."
What means something like: It looks like a Donatello in a room filled with savages. (Donatello was a classic sculptor with sculptures in the style of the Greek)
So fauvism comes from the French word fauve, what savage means.

Characteristics:
-no perspective
-bright, wild colours
-make things more abstract
-intense

Artists:
There is a list of Fauvistic artists but I'll show you a few of the most well-known.

Henri Matisse 
You can see his evolution.
Harmony in Red
King of Sorrow
 The sheaf (I don't know of this is the right translation)

Georges Braque
 Landscape at Estaque
 The viaduct of Estaque (although this is more kubism)

André Derain
Charing Cross Bridge (London)

You can see that I like Matisse the most. When I was little he was one of my favourite artists! Because of his colours probably ;)

Fauvism

Yesterday our arthistory lesson was about fauvism. There was some time left at the end and our teacher suggested to draw each other in fauvistic style. En a good student as she is ;) Ruby started immediately to draw me! Two other classmates too, so I had to be a model for a while. I eventually got 2 of the drawings. Watch and see ...
The colours are brighter normally! It's in fluo

Fur?

You have to admit it. Fur is one of the winter trends.
I used to be absolutely against fur. In the first place for the animals (of course) and in the second place, it was horribly ugly. But opinions can change and mine does this very often with fashion. So there must be a time that I would change my mind about fur. And that time is now. I'm changing my mind slightly more and more.

And Since I said still changing I like the more subtle fur, not long coats till the ground (yet?) and of course faux fur!
I'll show you some examples:

Raspberry Jam
JBC

Topshop
ZARA

New Look (It just looks so cosy!)
New Look
Asos Magazine (Wool is fur in my opinion)
