Raoul Dufy (1857-1953)
Raoul Dufy was born in Le Havre in Normandy and first visited the arts school of his hometown before studying at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris. From there, Dufy transferred as a student to the studio of the French painter Léon Bonnat (1833-1922). A painting by Henri Matisse led him to Fauvism. In 1937, he took part in the world fair in Paris. Dufy painted a series of French coastal towns in French Normandy. (tm)
