I enjoy using the style of Fauvism in making my art with local landmarks. Here is the Cathedral in the French Quarter in the style of Fauvists. They used colors to express mood and were the beginning of abstract art. For more see http://www.artcyclopedia.com/history/fauvism.html
The artists most closely associated with Fauvism are Albert Marquet, Andre Derain, Maurice de Vlaminck and Henri Matisse.
