André Derain
St. Paul’s Cathedral Seen from the Thames, 1906, oil on canvas, 99.1 x 80.1 cm, The Minneapolis Institute of Arts, USA.
After the great financial success of Claude Monet's views of the Thames  River, André Derain's dealer, Ambroise Vollard, convinced him to paint  London, too. During two trips to England in 1905 and 1906, Derain made  thirty views of the city. This one features Sir Christopher Wren’s  famous 17th-century cathedral. Being a Fauvist painter, Derain has distilled and  expressed his emotions about the subject using intensified colors and a  simplified design.
