Fauvism has its roots in the post-impressionist paintings of Gauguin. It had been his use of symbolic color that pushed art towards the design of art movement. The painter planned that color had a symbolic vocabulary that can be wont to visually translate a variety of emotions. In 'Vision once the Sermon' where painter depicts Jacob wrestling with an angel, he paints the background a flat red to emphasize the mood and subject of the sermon: Jacob's religious battle fought in a very blood red field of combat. The painter believed that color had a mystical quality that would specific our feelings a few subject instead of merely describe a scene.
