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."
