Oil on board, still of flowers. Signed and attr. Charles Camoin (French, 1879-1965) on lower right corner. 11.5 x 15.5 in (29.2 x 39.4 cm). Born in Marseille, France, Camoin met Henri Matisse in Gustave Moreau's class at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. Matisse and his friends (including Camoin, Henri Manguin, Albert Marquet, Georges Rouault, Andre Derain and Maurice de Vlaminck), formed the original group of artists labeled the Fauves (meaning "the wild beasts") for their wild, expressionist-like use of color. Camoin always remained close to Matisse. He painted a portrait of Matisse, which is in the permanent collection of the Pompidou Museum in Paris. Charles Camoin's works have been widely shown in France and are in such major collections as the Musee d'Art Moderne de la ville de Paris in addition to the Centre Georges Pompidou and many of the French regional museums. In 1955, he was awarded the Prix du President de la Republique at the Biennale of Menton. He died in Paris on 20 May 1965. PROVENANCE: Upper New York Estate
