There were approximately 12 other members including George Braque who went on to develop cubism with Pablo Picasso, Raoul Dufy and Kees van Dongen.
The Fauve movement was primarily known for experimenting with strong/bold colour, straight from the tube (sometimes softened with white) and thick short brushstrokes.
In 1905, Matisse, Derain, Vlaminck and other artists exhibited at the Salon d’Automne in France.
The exhibition, due to its non – naturalist colours, shocked its visitors, and it was here that the term Fauvism (French for ‘wild beasts’) was coined by the ‘art critic Louise Vauxcelles – who scornfully commented that the artists painted like wild beasts, unintentionally giving the new style its name: Fauvism’.  Vauxcelles, would also go on to coin the term Cubism which a lot of the Fauvist artists would later become key members of, as well.
