About

Raoul DUFY (1877-1953) Relaxation Black Ink Dimensions: 49 x 63.5 cm Signed lower right Raoul Dufy Mrs Fanny Guillon Lafaille has confirmed the authenticity of the artwork. Raoul Dufy The classically trained French painter, designer and graphic artist Raoul Dufy was first drawn to Impressionism before joining the Fauvism movement (1906-07) led by Henri Matisse. After this he came under the influence of the late Paul Cezanne (1839-1906) whose works he saw at the celebrated Salon d'Automne retrospective in 1907, and also Georges Braque (1882-1963) with whom he worked at L'Estaque in 1908. As a result his style became more sober and monumental, before returning to the natural lighter style: a style distinguished by rapid calligraphic-type drawing over bright backgrounds of thin colour. In his book Painting and Sculpture in Europe 1880-1940 (1967), the American art historian George Heard Hamilton (1910-2004) commented that like many minor masters, Dufy found a successful formula from which he never deviated "but it is so amusing and its variations so clever, that it rarely grows tiresome." Dufy also did numerous designs for fashion designers like Paul Poiret and Bianchini-Ferier, as well as illustrations for Apollinaire (1880-1918), and several mural paintings. More and more attracted to decorative art, he became a regular exhibitor at the Salon des Artistes Decorateurs, while also taking up wood engraving, lithography and watercolours. An active contributor to French painting to the end of his life, he won the principal painting prize at the Venice Biennale, in 1952.
