This listing is for a print titled 14 Juillet (National Day or Bastille Day in France), painted by Albert Marquet in 1906. His work is considered part of the art movement known as ‘fauvism’, as these post-impressionist artists were considered to be ‘fauves’ (wild beasts) by art critics, though Marquet’s paintings were less colourful than other fauvist painters. He preferred more muted colours. Marquet was a life-long friend of Henri Matisse.
