          Oil paint on canvas 65.7 x 99.1 cm Tate. Presented by the Trustees of the Chantrey Bequest 1951 © ADAGP, Paris and DACS, London 2017

          Derain’s view of the Thames from London Bridge is one of four works showing the same part of the river, having been sent to London with the purpose of creating a fresh vision of the Thames views, as painted by Monet a few years earlier. Vividly coloured and boldly painted, The Pool of London 1906 is characteristic of fauvism in creating vivid effects through bold contrasts of colour.

          Artist details

          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).
