San Antonio Museum or Art


wild beast

Wild Beast, a pop-up restaurant, opens June 14 in conjunction with Matisse: Life in Color. Wild Beast is located in the Hops House building with a terrace overlooking the San Antonio River. The restaurant is serving a simple summer menu with counter service and is the inspiration of the owners of The Monterey.

For a short period (1905-1907) Matisse was part of Les Fauves (Wild Beasts), the name given by an art critic to a group of artists whose boldly colored, thickly textured work was shocking in comparison to earlier art. Matisse later said Fauvism meant construction by means of color.
