And to France we go. Raoul Dufy had a style of painting all his own. The French Fauvist painter captured the folly of everyday life in Paris. His paintings are painterly and illustrative, mostly done in watercolor-on-paper and thinned out oils. His work is so “sketchy”, and clearly influenced the way fashion designers illustrate. And he’s an absolute master of washed-out-yet-vibrant colorization of representational scenes. Aren’t his pieces so whimsical and down right fun? I don’t know about you, but I’m such a sucker for hanging flags, marching bands, and interior scenes with the Eiffel tower in the window.
