Sotheby's is thrilled to present three extraordinary examples of Herbin’s Fauve output, characterized by the artist’s unique use of thick bands of color and vibrant hues. Highlighting the importance of the link between color and sensation, these landscapes are a compelling insight into the artist's ability to translate light into form, anticipating the bright and abstract paintings he would later produce toward the end of the 1920s.

1907 was a pivotal year for Herbin. By this time he had fully embraced Fauvism, and he exhibited works, including La Place Maubert (lot 115), at the seminal Salon des Indépendents. In the spring of 1907, he was invited to Corsica by the German collector and art critic Wilhelm Uhde. The Corsican sun and colors were a revelation for Herbin who was, at the time, fully involved with the Fauve revolution. This visit not only inspired Herbin to experiment with light and landscape, it also provided the ideal setting for him to push the boundaries of figurative representation and form and to experiment with the limits of geometry and swaths of unmodulated of color, as in Route de montagne en Corse (lot 114). The following years would see the artist move into the famed Bateau Lavoir studios in Paris and work alongside artists Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque and Juan Gris, rapidly incorporating Cubist tenets into his evolving style and ultimately becoming a founding member of the Abstraction-Création movement.
