The Cup of Tea (1935). Andre Derain (1880-1954). French Fauvist painter and sculptor. Naïve Art (Primitivism). Oil on canvas. Musée National d’Art Moderne, Centre Pompidou, Paris, France
After WW I, Derain won new acclaim as a leader of the renewed classicism then ascendant. With the wildness of his Fauve years far behind, he was admired as an upholder of tradition.
