Andre Derain "Big Ben"

This is a painting created by Andre Derain in 1905 entitled "Big Ben." The painting depicts buildings in London such as the famous clock tower "Big Ben." This painting is a great example of Fauvism which can be seen through Derain's use of primary colors. In the painting you can see each of his brushstrokes which distorts reality and allows the sky and water to look like they are in motion.  What I love about this painting is how it can be interpreted as daytime or nighttime because of the use of intense colors.
