SOLD Brilliantly colored blue is the main focus of this Raoul Duffy lithograph. The ocean takes up the majority of the scene, as onlookers look out over the vastness, standing behind a red gate along the bottom. Several boats skim the surface and the sky peeks up over the horizon, reflecting back the colors of the water.
About the Artist:
Raoul Dufy’s cheerful oils and watercolors depict events of the time period, including yachting scenes, sparking views of the French Rivera, chic parties, and musical events. The optimistic fashionably decorative, and illustrative nature of much of his works has meant that his output has been less highly valued critically than the works of artists who have addressed a wider range of social concerns.
Dufy completed one of the largest paintings ever contemplated, a huge and immensely popular ode to electricity, the fresco Le Fee Electricite for the 1937 Exposition Internationale in Paris. Dufy also acquired a reputation as an illustrator and as a commercial artist. He changed the face of local fashion and fabric design with his work for Paul Poiret. He painted murals for public buildings and produced a huge number of tapestries and ceramic designs.
