Today's word is fauve, spelled F-A-U-V-E.
Fauve is an adjective that means of or relating to painters practicing fauvism. It can also mean, more broadly, vivid in color. Here is the word used in a sentence from The Economist.
Three were landscapes…. The other was a later painting of Adele, pale and strained, standing in a big hat with her arms loose amid fauve colours of red, mauve and green.
When French art critic Louis Vauxcelles spotted a statue reminiscent of 15th-century Italian art in the midst of works by an avant-garde group of painters - principal among them Henri Matisse - at an exhibit in Paris in 1905, he verbalized his shock with the words Donatello au milieu des fauves! or Donatello among the wild animals! His reaction was to the painters' unconventional use of intensely vivid color and free treatment of form, and apparently his words weren't far off the mark in describing their art: Matisse and company's art movement became known as Fauvism and the artists flourishing in it, the Fauves. In 1967, the intense impact of their colors was still vibrant, inspiring one writer for Vogue to use fauve as an adjective to describe the colors of a striking flowered coat - and that use can still be found today vivifying colors.
