A friend of Matisse, Vlaminck and Picasso, Derain made a major contribution to the Fauvist movement.He also played a critical part in the evolution of Cubism. Derain, along with Matisse and Vlaminck decorated vases and ceramics in the Fauvist style in the early part of the 20th century. He was also fascinated with the decorative design of ceramics in the 1930s when this fun design was made.
