Raoul Dufy (French)
Born 1877 in Le Havre, France — Died 1953 in Forcalquier, France
Raoul Dufy was an artist and designer whose paintings and prints portrayed open-air social events and urban landscapes. His cheerful oils and watercolors depict events of the time period, including yachting scenes, sparkling views of the French Riviera, chic parties, and musical events.
Dufy created airy washes of light and shade, into which he would draw bold calligraphic brushstrokes. His breezy yet experimental use of color was influenced by the Impressionist and Fauvist painters.
Raoul Dufy artworks are held in international private and public collections, from the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, France, to the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the Art Institute of Chicago.
