Dufy, Raoul

French Fauvist painter Raoul Dufy, a native of Le Harve, began studying art at a local art school, where he first met Othon Friesz. Friesz quickly became a lifelong friend of Dufy, and the two would often paint together outside of their academic art training. Thereafter, the two attended the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Bonnat. Dufy's works imitated the impressionist style of Van Gogh, Renoir, Vollard, Gauguin and others. It was not until the early 1900s that Dufy began painting in the Fauvism style. Later, he was introduced to cubism and began incorporating the style into his works. Dufy first came into success through commissions for tapestries and needlework. Thereafter he created popular textile designs, which were circulated by grands couturiers of Paris, including Paul Poiret and Bianchini. Later, he completed woodcut illustrations for books by Guillaume Apollinaire, Stephane Mallarme and other noteworthy poets. He also completed works of ceramics, social life, nudes, rococo style art and murals, including his most ambitious mural "Electricity through the Ages," which was completed for the Paris World's Fair of 1937. Dufy always remained true to his artistic stylings and painted the world as he saw it. In fact, his paintings were often revered as vogue. Dufy died in 1953 of a heart condition.
