b Chatou, nr Paris, 17 June 1880; d Garches, 8 Sept 1954

 French painter, sculptor, illustrator, stage designer and collector. He was a leading exponent of FAUVISM. In early 1908 he destroyed most of his work to concentrate on tightly constructed landscape paintings, which were a subtle investigation of the work of Cézanne. After World War I his work became more classical, influenced by the work of such artists as Camille Corot. In his sculpture he drew upon his knowledge and collection of non-Western art.
