Raoul Dufy: L’Ivresse de la Couleur, Hotel Caumont Centre d’Art, Aix-en-Provence

Raoul Dufy, Provence Landscape, 1905

In 1908–09, Raoul Dufy and George Braque went to L’Estaque, France, the small fishing village a few kilometers west of Marseille. They made revolutionary paintings there, following the trail blazed by Paul Cezanne a few decades before. The Hotel Caumont Centre d’Art in Aix-en-Provence is now showing a dazzling array of Dufy’s paintings from l’Estaque and elsewhere in Provence and France. One sees the influence of Cezanne, but also, especially, Dufy’s remarkable innovations and unique style. To see images from the exhibit, go here.
