Fauvist painter, draftsman, and printmaker Raoul Dufy inspired a wide range of fine and decorative artists with his playful style and appealing subject matter. Dufy drew inspiration from Impressionists Camille Pissarro and Claude Monet and closely studied the works of Paul Cézanne and Henri Matisse. He typically painted leisure scenes, seascapes (often of the French Riviera), and domestic interiors, as in Artist’s Studio in Vence, a vibrant red scene recalling Matisse’s own rendition of the same subject. After 1920, Dufy engaged more closely with the work of Cézanne and Pablo Picasso, flattening and deconstructing his compositions and creating portraits in the African-mask inflected manner typical of Picasso’s own Cubist work, as in Little Bather at Ste. Adress (1932-33). Also a commercial illustrator, Dufy’s works were included in books by writers Guillaume Apollinaire and Stéphane Mallarmé.
