Exhibition print of Derain’s Big Ben 1906-7. Our exhibition prints are made using our highest quality print method and paper stock, ensuring the most faithful reproduction.
Observed from across the water, Derain’s Big Ben portrays the iconic clock tower and the Houses of Parliament in an echo of Monet’s famous series, but renders it in dazzling colour. The reflection of sunlight on the water shines in pinks and yellows, vivid against the blues and greens of both sky and water.
André Derain (1880 – 1954) was a French artist, painter, and sculptor. In 1898, while studying to be an engineer at the Académie Camillo, Derain met Henri Matisse at a painting class taught by Eugène Carrière. Together, Derain and Matisse co-founded Fauvism – a movement characterised by the bold, unnaturally bright colours that the critic Louis Vauxcelles derided as the work of ‘wild beasts’ (les Fauves).
