Rare Vintage 1949 Dufy “Nude” Offset LithographGOLDEN RULE GALLERY
A vibrant vintage reproduction of the charming Nude, 1944 by Raoul Dufy printed while he was still living.
Nude is thought to be one of the artist's most "finished" works. The palette is Dufy's freest and most audacious and we get a pleasing sampling of his art in the gallery wall behind the nude figure.
8” x 10 5/8” color plate tipped in on heavy paper. Information regarding the work of art can be found by lifting the bottom right corner of the print.
Raoul Dufy has swiftly become a new favorite of mine. This passage written by Sam Hunter sums him up in a delightful little snapshot.
"After painting as a Fauve, Dufy was in turn influenced by Cézanne and the Cubists. He continued following along the paths of modern art with a sprightly and charming step all his own during the next decade, developing a personal idiom that emphasized graphic elements, that was tender and decorative in color, and that gave a witty and worldly twist to the serious art of his time. He painted a sophisticated and pleasure-loving world with a curiously innocent and detached eye, in piquant colors and with an ingenious, faintly mocking line."
