Andre Derain (1880-1954) French Fauvist Painter who was influenced by Neo-Impressionism, a style in which a painting is made up of small dots of colour. Derain became familiar with this style through the work of Paul Signac (1863-1935), a major artist whom Matisse had befriended and visited in the southern French village of Saint-Tropez.
