Kees van Dongen was a Dutch-French painter who was one of the leading Fauves. The early paintings of van Dongen were influenced by Hague School symbolism before evolving into a rough pointillist style. The use of form and color of his paintings became more and more radical after 1905 when he took part in the controversial Salon d'Automne exhibition. Often regarded as one of his most important works, his works from the period of 1905–1910 depict dancers, singers, masquerades, and theater performances.
