André Derain studied alongside Maurice de Vlaminck in Paris. After they both met Matisse in 1899 who encouraged them to further their studies in color, Derain and de Vlaminck both adapted Fauvism. In 1905 Derain traveled to England to paint the Pool of London. Derain was later influenced by Cezanne and his landscapes were in the Impressionist style. Derain also designed theatre sets and book illustrations.
