About

A wonderful example of a reclining nude by Marcel Dyf, painted with characteristic panache; fabulous brushstrokes and colour employed to capture the curves of the model. Marcel Dyf (1899-1985) Reclining nude Signed Oil on canvas 23½ x 28¾ inches Authenticated by Madame Claudine Dyf and included in the e-catalogue raisonné as no.5297 Marcel Dyf was born in Paris in 1899. He grew up in Normandy, in the towns of Ault, Deauville and Trouville. He started a career as an engineer, but soon decided to become a painter. In 1922, he moved to Arles, where he was trained as a painter and set up a studio. He painted frescoes in the city halls of Saint-Martin-de-Crau and Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer. He also painted frescoes in the Museon Arlaten and in the dining hall of the Collège Ampère, both of which are in Arles. In 1935, he moved to Maximilien Luce's old studio on the Avenue du Maine in Paris. By 1940, because of the German invasion of France during the Second World War, he returned to Arles. He quickly joined the French Resistance in Corrèze and the Dordogne. He later moved back to Paris, and finally moved in Saint-Paul-de-Vence. However, in the 1950s, he started wintering in Paris and summering in Cannes, where he attracted the attention of American art collectors. His work was exhibited and sold at the Petrides Gallery, the Salon d’Automne, the Salon des Tuileries and the Salon des Artistes Français in Paris as well as galleries in Cannes, Nice, Marseille and Strasbourg. Overseas, it was exhibited at the Frost & Reed Gallery in London. In 1954, he married Claudine Godat in Cannes, when she was nineteen years old. The Dyfs purchased a sixteenth-century hunting lodge in Bois-d'Arcy near Versailles, and it became their primary residence. They also summered in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence and Eygalières.
