Kees van Dongen (Rotterdam-Delfshaven, 26 January 1877 – Monte Carlo, 28 May 1968) was a Dutch painter.
He studied at the painters academy from 1892 to 1897. In 1897, he moved to Paris, where he made a living as a house painter and illustrator for satirical journals. In 1929, van Dongen was naturalized as a Frenchman. He died May 28, 1968 in Monte Carlo.
Van Dongen's work belonged to the group Les Fauves, which caused a furore in Paris in the first ten years of the 20th century.
The leading figures of les Fauves were Van Dongen himself, Henri Matisse, André Derain, Maurice de Vlaminck and Albert Marquet. Characteristic of his work are the primitive-looking forms and the bright, unmixed colours.
He is known for his many paintings of the female nude, for him the woman was 'the most beautiful landscape'. His most famous model was Brigitte Bardot. Later in his career (after 1918) he became a "society painter", he then began to focus on painting many portraits of Parisian society.
