Collection: Raoul Dufy

Raoul Dufy (1877-1953) was a masterful French artist renowned for his vividly hued paintings, illustrative drawings, and innovative textile designs. As a leading proponent of Fauvism, Dufy's art bursts with colour and a free-spirited joie de vivre. His oeuvre encapsulates the leisure and luminosity of the early 20th century French Riviera — a tapestry of regattas, outdoor concerts, and the genteel bustle of seaside life. Celebrated for his ingenious blend of nature's vivacity and modernist vision, Dufy's influence permeates the evolution of abstract and contemporary art, making his work an enduring celebration of light and life.
