Portrait of Lucien Gilbert

André Derain French

Not on view

This picture is one of several dynamic, boldly-colored portraits that Derain created around 1905. In addition to depicting Gilbert, a childhood friend of the artist and later a collector of his work, Derain also painted portraits of his fellow artists, Matisse (Tate, London), and Vlaminck (Musée des Beaux-Arts de Chartres).
