100 PORTRAITS IN 100 DAYS - Edgar, 4/100, © Carol Nelson Fine Art
Fauvism was an art movement in the early 1900's made popular by Matisse and other artists of that time period. Art critics in Paris were aghast at the outrageous colors used in these paintings. Matisse's portrait of his wife, Madame Matisse, is also known as the green line.
My subject here, Edgar, said he would like a portrait done in Fauvist style, so I modeled the color scheme after Matisse's portrait of his wife.
As you can see, about the only thing that really represents Edgar are his blue eyes, yet it does look like him, green nose and all.
