Name derisively hurled at and cheerfully adopted by a group of French painters, including Matisse, Rouault, Derain, Vlaminck, Friesz, Marquet, van Dongen, Braque, and Dufy.

It was essentially an expressionist style, characterized by bold distortion of forms and exuberant color. From encyclopedia.com
