Maurice de Vlaminck, Village in the Valley, c. 1913

From the Indianapolis Museum of Art:

When Vlaminck painted this landscape in 1913, he had already begun to tame the exuberant palette of his Fauve works in favor of a color scheme based on earth tones.

Here Vlaminck explores issues of composition and pictorial structure, inspired in part by the carefully ordered landscapes of Paul Cézanne. He balanced the trees at left and right and presented the distant village as a network of faceted planes. The unrestrained brushwork sustains the vigorous handling common to Vlaminck’s Fauve canvases.
