Hilda Clements Hassel was a British artist whose work was inspired by the earlier Fauvism of her French peers. The name les fauves literally translates at ‘the wild beasts’ and is a term that was coined by the critic Louis Vauxcelles when he saw the work of Henri Matisse and Andre Derain in an exhibition, the salon d’automne in Paris, in 1905.

These works were the result of a summer spent working together in Collioure in the South of France and were made using bold, non-naturalistic colours, where often the paintbrush was bypassed in favour of applying paint directly onto the canvas from the tube. Hassel has very much incorporated the loose dabbing of paint into her work, and combined with her frequent simplification of form and bright palette, the works appear somewhat abstract.
