- Dufy Raoul (1877-1953)
Raoul Dufy is a French artist and designer widely recognized for depicting landscapes and leisure activities in a Fauvist style.
This particular composition is the study of a fabric pattern for the well-known Bianchini-Férier silk firm. The association of Dufy and Bianchini-Férier, between 1911 and 1928, made Dufy one of the twentieth century’s most influential textile designers. Dufy also collaborated as a textile designer with Paul Poiret during the early 20th century. In 1952, he was awarded the 26th Venice Biennale prize. His work is present in the permanent collection of most major museums, a.o. in the Musée d’Orsay in Paris and the MOMA in New York.
