About

Raoul Dufy (French, 1877 – 1953) Vénus à la Coquille Circa 1925 Black crayon on paper laid down 26 x 19.3/4in. (66 x 50cm.) Provenance: From the family of Cavailles Expertise: This drawing is shown as number 1835 and 1875 reproduced in the catalogue raisonné of watercolours by Raoul Dufy, Paris, 1982, tome II, pages 284 and 297 by Fanny Guillon. A certificate from Madame Fanny Guillon will be provided with this work. Raoul Dufy was born in Le Havre, Normandy and took up evening classes in his late teens under Charles Lhuillier, a student of Ingres. He met Othon Friesz who he shared a studio with in Montmartre later. While studying at the Ecole des beaux arts in Paris with Friesz, he met another contemporary Georges Braque. He was greatly influenced by Monet, Pissarro and Matisse. The latter directed him towards Fauvism. This work is a particularly large and striking drawing which shows his ability to use line confidently while addressing the female form. There is a confident ease in the single strokes he uses to provide the image of Venus which is unmistably from the period. This work is a particularly large and striking drawing which shows his ability to use line confidently while addressing the female form. He only needs to use single strokes to provide the image of Venus which is unmistably from the period and style.
