Marcel Dyf
'Golden Fields' French Impressionist Country Landscape painting with figures

Price Upon Request

About

'Golden Fields' is a gloriously warm painting of summer in the Provence. Golden fields of corn with two figures walking in the distance. To watch Dyf paint was entrancing. Even as an old man, he would stand rather than sit before the easel, working with extraordinary vigour and intense concentration. His palette was a rainbow of fresh colours and his hand continually darted back and forth from the canvas. At intervals he would step back or consider briefly another picture before returning to the easel, his eye refreshed. Usually he sketched straight onto the canvas, which he set up on his travelling easel. He would work on a subject for two or three hours and return the next day, in search of the same light on the landscape. Dyf is at all times self critical in the choice of his subjects and many of his paintings show tremendous power of expression and portray his inherent vitality. In this moment he is out walking with his wife Claudine and his niece. He seizes the opportunity to create a harmony of tone and colour which enchants the eye. In this turbulent age it is no mean accomplishment to soothe the senses in this way. A painting of simple attraction and for that reason most effective as the houses are used as foils against the distant hills and shrubbery. While the figures give a bright splash of colour. Everything in this painting vibrates white light as if Dyf has used his brush as a conductors baton.
